MUST BE 18 OR OLDER - MUST READ TERMS OF SERVICE

In all my eagerness, for success to be reached

I remain poised, as still as the sign that says

Stop no longer distracted by the noise…

Hearing the world more clearly, a melody I can’t

forget, the universal signs & my thoughts collide

as I try not to slip…How often do these raindrops

drip & puddles form on the ground.  Sometimes

I stare at my reflection through them unsurprised

at what I found…A displaced man with a story

of pain & misfortunes over his face, heartbreak

along with heartache within his eyes still remain…

The man who was never a boy, traveling down

a road of unknown, gathering strength with each

turn & no matter how many times he fell he never

succumbed to his load…stronger & more encouraged,

dedicated & alive, he accepts the naked truth, that

he was built to survive…
