    Poetry In Motion

    A flower plucked amid soft lips of sorrows
    Costumes the trounces of lingering desires.
    And in the presence of thine adversaries,
    Stand elevated, smile widely, and laugh with glee.
    Speak with high esteem and shine bright as alabaster.
    For they mustn’t see what truly is.
    How dare they have the gall to peer beyond?
    It took years to perfect the ideal image.
    Hours of overtime spent wallowing in self-pity and sulking in despair.
    Far too much time has come and gone to simply throw it all away.
    What good could possibly arise from looking in the mirror?
    Where has looking at self ever taken someone?
    Responsibility? Who wants it?
    Besides, self is still under construction-
    A work in progress.
    No great success was ever achieved overnight.
    The only aspiration in life is to find someone else to blame
    Or to empty pockets into the collection plate of psychiatry;
    How else can self-improvement be achieved without outside input?
    Sole attempt?
    Soul attempt?
    Bizarre at the least.
    Not to mention, one track minds on the road to success never
    pausing to realize the road is crumbling rapidly following every footstep.
    In due time, the road vanishes leaving the same one track mind trampled
    by closed-minded perceptions of human nature.
    Revalations is reached before Genesis is attempted.
    Everything given up.
    Nothing started..........
