un single minded ness

un single minded ness

A Poem by Shirlena
"

to think of others

"

said her rhythms in the openness

wide wide stretch of ambiance ocean beast habitat

but what did it pose for me

well I found out I had to stand outside of my personification

there would be few blessings between the crux of opinions criticism

she could float above others and dust across them fantasy imagination

understanding calculating meditating reasonably concluding

dependent upon her virginal expressions non-complacency

 

searching for the nether word

the ever word

the hungry word

the fulfilling word

the chilling word

guttural word

the healing

the butter melting

on her lips

the substantial

the feeling



the    willing...yes word



and number one... it might become law to empathy’s folk

maybe even a few obstinate to a fault

to those favoring realism tempered with elation

standing in someone else's shoes

this is what she would teach the children

that there are other’s unlike themselves deserving the same

to be even leveled ethical next to people in life

if I am patient…maybe

and if not adjust her vision and walk on by waving a sign saying


“IT AIN’T JUST US so it ain't just you”


because can’t be switched what don’t want to purge

and be new again…so it’s up to her to rearrange purpose

become the lesser one stepping out of her reach

for the heights of something…

 “together”


                               

W  O  R  D  Up... hey

Your poetry always makes me think. I enjoy reading you very much. Equal in all eyes, different though the same as each of us. This was great.

Hi Shirlena, went inside my head today... I felt you... said my imaginations wild about you... and the things you say with compassionate love-- just take me to the sky... floating me in the middle of my master's air... you and I will be... always... on side... in these feelings of knowing the truth of what unconditional love offers... same heart-beat through different eyes and skin... and yet our love rules the universe... the words to raise the children of the earth to another plain... no condemnation upon the unbeknown of ignorance... so went inside your head today... I found all I could ever want... my imaginations wild about you... the truth in your convictions lights my heart... went inside your mind today...

You rock-a-by with gentle grace my lady! xx

Again, your pen spoke magic and truth. Being in someone else's shoes is the first step to understanding and caring about others, to relate to their problems and solutions, to adjust our vision to their needs and above all teach the children that it is a virtue of togetherness. Selfishness is not as substantial as sacrifice and caring. An excellent poem and message...:).................
