    Some, they say, are born with a veil
    That wrapped-in-mystery shroud of birth
    Causing those given this prophetic caul
    To wonder if it's a blessing or a curse
    For what could possibly ever be worse
    Than to hear the call
    Or see the inevitable fall
    Of those around you
    And have nothing one can do
    To prevent or lovingly warn
    But only comfort or join them to mourn
    Yet, the visions or dreams
    Do not only herald the unfortunate
    Sometimes, one knows beforehand
    What will also benefit
    And bring great joy
    By advising the right steps to employ
    Or choices to make
    All in the best interest
    Of some loved one's sake
    And, although logic and religious tenets
    May dispute or set firm limits
    To this "alleged" gift's credibility
    And, for many, it's questionable validity
    But, it's up to each individual
    To rebut or believe
    Deny or cleave
    To it's history......

    And, I've lived to witness and see
    That there are things of this world
    That are simply, otherwise,
    Unexplainable to me.

    I have heard some say they were born with a veil. To know something is about to happen, but can neither explain or stop the event from occuring if it's harmful...what a cross to bear.
    Sister Cherryblossom, I am enjoying your talented pen to the utmost. However, we ask that you limit your poetic pieces to 5 on the front page of the "Get Your Flow On" forum, and right now you have 7 poems on the front page. Destee's Poetic Etiquette rules state:

    1. Don't flood the forum with your poetry!
    Yessssss ... we want to read your work, but please give us a little bit at a time. Don't post every peace you've ever written, immediately after joining us. Start slowly by posting a peace or two at a time. If you have 5+ peaces on the "first page" of the poetry forum, you are probably posting too many within a short period of time.

    Every Member wants their work to remain on the "first page" of the poetry forum as long as possible. If you flood the forum with many of your pieces ... you are pushing everyone else's work to the back pages (which happens quickly enough because there are so many poets.)

    Thank you for understanding sis.
