I am a tapestry

I am a tapestry

A Poem by Kimberly "Melody" Carney



I am not finished nor will be,

I am a tapestry.

A soul that drifts in this body,

It is my prodigy.


I blend with you as much I can,

Within this short life span.

But what is done when time is done,

Same soul new life begun.


Each time I see so differently,

For all eternity.

Picture perfect,  don’t want to be!

Unseen means more to me.


So when you look upon my flesh,

A mere camouflage mesh.

Behold and see what is beyond,

The soul that laced this bond.


No; religion, gender or race,

Just purity and grace.

I am not finished nor will I be,

I am a tapestry.

...and what IS a tapestry after all, but a thousand strands, woven together so that certain parts show and certain parts are concealed. Is that not what EVERY human life is? The real question, one which you seem well on the way to addressing, is: "Is the picture that is revealed by your weaving the picture that the Master Weaver would have you represent?"--"An ever-lasting vision/ Of the ever-changing view" Very well put, Melody!

If humans could write things in modern syntax 50,000 years ago while also knowing what would become of the species 50,000 years later... this is probably the sentiment they'd try and convey.

You are an objectively good writer.

Tapestries, in their uniqueness are multicolored strands where one may seem small and insignificant, contributes to the whole. Imagine if one strand were to snag, it could potentially ruin the whole design. Oh, and how varied it is! Between the dye, style, and everything that goes into it. How we all are a never ending string woven and changed throughout our lifetimes that the final product of who we become is often who we'll be remembered as.

Beautifully written.

euf... this is very well-expressed. Simple yet deep. Deep in its simplicity and simple in its deepness. I am maybe making no sense... But ask me what I felt, I'll say "everything". What a tapestry... what a prodigy... what a woman. :)

You ever write with the quill, I use too... loved this, it's just perfect..... ♥

This tapestry is very articulate, very nicely woven together (pun intended) and imaginative, ( I really enjoyed).

Very good music and amazing poetry. I like the use of tapestry to make your point in the poem. Life is a journey to piece a life together. Artwork gave life to the words. Thank you for the outstanding poetry.

To really truly believe in your dreams and make them come true… you must not first believe in yourself, but be prepared to prove your doubts and fears wrong. To know giving up is not an easy .. more..
