Friday poem

Floors of glass



I’ve watched in the darkness without

Realizing I was the light.

I listened from a distance

When you were right beside me.

I jumped up a stair

But it was the one I was already on

I whispered to the stars

When I was alone all along

I wondered what it would be like to see

When the world screamed “HELLO” all around me

I am not blind

My vision is just elsewhere.

In a fight, a TKO is considered fair

In life, a knockout happens every time I care

I felt you from afar

When you were right in my face

I desire to be great

But I remain at the gates

Do I knock

Or do I wait?

I have watched in the shadows

Without realizing I was the one who cast them

I feared the light that shone on me

I wanted nothing but its hand

Wouldn’t that be grand?

I looked in the mirror

And I felt inferior.

The man I saw was a leader

Yet I followed

I remained swallowed

In my own deceit.

The heart's greatest breach

Is the one made by the wielder himself?

Or herself?

We are human but we can be so much more if we accept our core.

Strive to soar.
