    IN WHAT ORDER.....DOES LIFE TAKE.....

    THE LOOKING GLASS






    As I sit amongst The Few the Proud and the Many,
    I am struck by the Familiarity of it all…

    Our lives are portrayed on the stage of life gifted and raw...
    The skin we are dressed in polished to its extreme luster...

    We consistantly strive to portray our better halves our better selves...
    An achingly starved place from within that beckons destiny...

    There's no escaping the ultimate journey embarked on by hungry need...
    As one, our voices drown woes... ultimately overcoming droughts 

    The consuming need drags forth a hope outreaching and yearning...
    Parched dreams instantly sated by heavenly downpours muse...

    The awakening of hunger vastly satisfied and fulfilled
    Now realities flame and essence rises and takes shape in flight...

    Newfound hope struts and blooms... striking all on vanities row of souls...
    This anointment cast for its outwardly infectious nature ..

    The Few the Proud and the Many we are…
    Struck by the Familiarity of it still...

    Beautifully well crafted, I love well written poetry in which the telling cuts through to the soul. When one writes and exposes one's inner self for all the world to witness and dissect, I think is a brave thing . . -Much Peace

    I like this poem and your words. this was a deep felt poem for me. I want to to read. I want to learn and I want to dream without concern. and your words seem to help me throught because I feel your pain and you said it throught your words. there's no more things to explain because your words are my words and it comes from your words and my words life and pure destiny! please read some of my words and critique all you can I gain by each word you say.
