Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope

A Poem by Gio S.P.
"

A poem that teaches one to embrace their imperfections, to accept their past which drags about mistakes and regrets, and to use it as fuel to see the beauty in ourselves.

"
Remember that you are a kaleidoscope,
of brilliant colours painting the world over
Resign your black and white,
you are more than right and wrong

You are the mistakes and promises,
the black sheep and the moth that
flew too close to the flames, you are
the wolf leading the pack

Remember that you are human,
of imperfected perfection.

I like it, you've a very earnest message and speak it wonderfully. If I had any recommendations it would be to lengthen the piece with more of these lovely metaphors and within them use some colours, the kaleidoscope metaphor would really benefit from adding a wider palette to the poem. As it stands, I really like it, Gio. Keep it up!

Gio while both black and white both are are amalgamation of all wavelengths as in black absorbs all and white reflects likewise, we only look at the outcome of black and white. Brevity is one of the most powerful elements of your authorship, your brevity conveys what eloquence cant.It condenses and collects your thoughts in a petri dish of highly dense content. This trait has the potency of a bullet. It made a great reading...looking for more of it

There are many of us that want to find our true selves in the acts of our lives. Whether we strive for perfection or sit back and smell the roses, we still need to be comfortable in our own skin, and to me that is what this poem means.:D

This piece provides great imagery; the short length of the last stanza provides a nice conclusion to the poem. I really enjoyed reading your work, keep it up!

You're welcome. Thanks! & I look forward to reading more of your work.
Tis a very mixed metaphor you present. A kaleidoscope, black sheep, moth to the flame, wolf leading the pack and human. The presentation is a free flowing free verse.
