    I met a man a while ago. His spirit touched me so much I worte about him. I have seen him five times, which is unheard of in such a big city. HELP me to understand this meaning...

    I see him there
    and my heart cries
    Weakens for the emptiness
    in his eyes
    Oh what a story they tell
    About a man that lived so well
    Only to be thrown in this cell
    my his own mind
    his own kind
    condemned him
    but he
    yes he
    was already condoomed
    Once he
    yes he
    could speak and make the summer flowers bloom
    In may
    they say
    he was the commander's son
    but none
    would have guessed his fate
    he now walks my block a quater to eight
    How does a soldier
    strong and well based man
    fall vistim to his own hand
    stray so far away from the plan
    B
    U
    Maybe
    Just maybe the sunny days smile in his face
    Maybe
    Just maybe
    He smiles becuz he cries
    or lies
    to himself
    to keep death
    4rm approaching
    becuz his pride is broken
    his heart
    discouraged
    Woe he
    yes he
    he
    me
    How can that be
    I feel you

    Please reply!

    Deep. Sounds like a man with a destroyed reputation. Someone who has been known for one thing and found out to be another, but the "other" thing he's been found out to be is not all there is to him.(Did you get that?) Maybe somehow you relate to him. Maybe the situation or the pain is similar. If so he could use a friend!

    profound insight twision..........I'm inclined to lean toward your
    analysis

    this was an interesting read, raised a lot of questions...but I
    was still unsure of the meaning...(sorry)

    yet, I'm still in agreement with twision

    In my own experience, I have found that I don't usually know the reason for the karmic meeting for a while. If I were you I'd be patient and wait for the answer to come to your heart, because it will. :)

    I have found that the answers I seek are usually within. Be patient, listen to your heart. We (other poets) can never tell you precisely what you need to know. Seek wisdom, and let her guide you.

    God sends certain people in our lives for certain reasons. Sometimes it's just for a season.
    So learn what you can from him before his season is gone.
    Make the most of your time because obviously if someone is weighing on your mind so hard, there is a reason.
