rough work

rough work

A Poem by Emily B

You aren't the same man

any more.

 

Your mirror lies

 

if the reflection you see

hasn't changed.

 

The weight of hard years

lifts from your shoulders

day by day

 

and ordinary

miracles are still worked

by extraordinary hearts.

 

Light shines

so often 

from unexpected sources.

 

I am amazed

at the transformation.

I am amazed
at the transformation

A simple but powerful piece. When somebody at the bottom still has light inside of them and can use it to tranform themselves for the better it is amazing. An unrecognized miracle that happens everyday and that we never see for the smog. Well done and bravo:)

Such a wonderful piece, Light from unexpected sources. That kind if light always shines the brightest. I love the message.

it's funny how i read the first two lines and thought that this would be the exact opposite of what it turned out to be. truly amazed at the transformation.

like all miracles, a work in progress :)
A quiet, reflective piece that speaks volumes. Every word spoke to me especially:
"and ordinary
miracles are still worked
by extraordinary hearts."

and

"Light shines
so often
from unexpected sources."

Light shines through you and your extraordinary heart. Well done!

Witnessing a transformation - beautifully done! I think sometimes, in order for any transformation to take full root it has to be recognized - plainly, honestly, and eloquently. :)

I think you see so much more than any of us sometimes and convey it so wonderfully in such a small mouth full.
