    THE KNOWLEDGE

    Open your mind
    to this thought
    from infancy a child
    is taught.
    The feeling
    of caring toward all
    the duty of sharing
    on him
    it should fall.
    To his companion
    understanding
    he should show
    to nurture and protect
    the love
    they've come to know.
    As a boy
    becomes a man
    if
    he should succede
    this
    should be the rule
    on which he will feed.

    THE PRICE

    YOU STAND AS TREES
    PROUND AND STRONG
    THINKING IN YOUR MIND
    YOU'VE DONE NO WRONG.
    BUT ATLAS ALL THAT REMAINS
    SPEAKS YOUR STORY
    WITH BITTERNESS AND PAIN
    YOUR REWARD FOR GLORY
    INJURED AND WOUNDED
    YOU CRAWL THROUGH
    ONLY TO FIND
    WHAT THEY SAID
    WAS NOT THE TRUTH.
    WEAKENED IN YOUR HEART
    YOU MUST CONTINUE TO STRIVE
    FOR THE VICTOR
    IS THE ONE WHO FIGHTS
    TO SURVIVE.
    STEADY AND STRONG
    BE
    YOUR DETERMINATION
    FOR HERE LIES
    YOUR HOPE
    YOUR SHINING SALVATION.

    When I read this piece I felt a message of Manhood, Courage, Fortitude, Resilience and Strength. Some poems are delivered in the same manner that a leaf dances in the wind, some are a delivered in the same manner that hammer slamming into stone.
    I much admiration for the sound of the stone and the hammer.
    Thank you
