Here's some poetry for your spirit and your soul
Unexpected places, in unassuming packages.
Who’s that passing by?
Is that a bird in the sky?
Well if it was all about what caught the eye,
I’d miss the Super for Clark Kent in disguise.
But the one standing in front of me may not even know
How awesome they are.
Because the words and labels slathered on them
Left them in slander and scars
But what if every soul I pass is a special being?
And what if riches aren’t solely measured by the outward things I’m seeing?
Could there be a mine so great that the Gold Rushers would be fleeing
To receive from immense dispensed treasures?
Are you reading? Are you reading me?
Because others seem to have it all together
But pull back the cover, see pass the leather.
And you’ll probably see many things in them that could be expressed in many letters.
Or Pictures. Because we all have a journey.
Nouns and Verbs. Twists and Turns.
Though gruff exteriors and unrefined appearances
Give the smell of being inferior what if we got past that?
And heard the clearest articulation of something of quality.
But let’s be clear, Abuse is not okay.
If you’re holding onto a relationship and hoping to make it work.
But if all you’re getting is assault and mistreatment, it may be time to do what you need to get away.
Cry for help if you can't find a way out!
Because they can’t yet see the precious cargo sitting right in front of them.
Perhaps because they weren’t treated with dignity
And this all perpetuates a cycle that just harms you and me.
