    As I sit, I reflect
    Upon a Broadloom of memories,
    Of Dreams
    Some ragged, shaggy and worn
    While others
    Plush enough to sink my feet into
    These memories, Those dreams
    Are all, delicately woven
    Into a tapestry of who I am

    I Reflect

    Back to childhood laughter
    Rippling at my sides
    And split feelings
    Of those friendships, even, loveships
    Old, Lost, Lasting and New

    And on Reflections
    Of colorful palettes
    Upon which I've lain
    Emitting characteristic hues
    Of Pinx, Skarlez, Yelloes and Bluz
    drawn of myself from distinct lines
    Though,
    Some, Not so well defined, yet blended
    Into the backdrop of a life
    Everchanging...
    Tis all a part of me

    And there are reflections of days
    Of non-jury trials
    White -vs- Brown
    Even,
    Brown -vs- Brown
    Steadfastly I rise

    Decked out
    In my Suit of Armour
    Not to take the stand...
    BUT TO TAKE A STAND
    For who I am...

    I Refect

    Upon Chocolate mirror-images
    Served as Edible courses
    Over a succession of time

    PAST
    ....PRESENT..
    .............FUTURE

    Feeding my soul,
    Allowing me to grow
    Into who I am..
    Into what I'll Be..
