Am I : A Missive Of Manifest

Am I : A Missive Of Manifest

A Poem by S.S.P.
"

stream of consciousness questions that will never be revealed ... until the future meets the past. it's one of those pen to paper things ... don't hurt yourself ;) 7/6/09

"

 

 

will I be recognized

when I rejoin the core

as one of a type

as a piece of the one?

will I be welcomed in spite of

or because of

the abraded life i've razed?

am I brave in my attempts to coalesce

or am I a charlatan

puppeting mass movements

that are false to my nature

and ovine?

do I deign to misconception

that this missive has meaning

beyond palaver?

I suppose that I may learn

once the lid hides the light

but I would be solaced

by suggestion.

Very thought provoking. I love words that inspire. This reminds me of when I once belonged to a church only because the woman I was dating went there when in actuality I wasn't too sold on their beliefs. These are questions I have pondered myself. I love your style here as well. Great job

Dear S.S. Privette,

Wonderful poem, and congratulations on your win in the "Kindred" contest.

I was a bit confused at first reading your title, but the poem explained all. Yes, these are my wonderings too. But I don't really think you'll find much solace in suggestions. Do you?

This piece inspired me to read more of your work, and I returned to this review after doing so. You have a nice collection. Most are a bit black, but I fall into that mood myself sometimes. So this is well understood.

A wonderful encapsulation of deep wonderings about life. Kudos.

Best regards,

Rick.

"i would be solaced by suggestion"

How often do we ask for these hints? Please... someone... just tell me who I am, really! Just do that much... I'll do the rest. But we are forced to learn by trial and error who we are, and many, sadly, never do. I think you captured that nicely here, and summed it up very well in that last line.

Very well done. And the photo you selected is wonderful.

A piece I find has so many interpratations that intruiges me. Love the subtelties about desiring more than the friendly chit-chat and looking for a purpose greater than one self. I can see this was written in a very free flow concept and I thoroughly enjoyed it :)

A voice rises from the depths and like a siren it deafens my ears. My favorite poet. Bar none...More brilliance from a brilliant mind.
