Where I see –

i have recently asked the question –
why is it you can see the best of me
i can see the best of you
we are unable to see the best in ourselves?


where i see a candle with barely an ember,
you see a flair, shooting light upwards toward the sky.
where you see stagnancy and an inability to create change,
i see the capability and strength to soar.
where i see only fear and the need to withdrawal,
you see a potency and a place in the sun.
where you harbor fright which keeps you hidden in the wings,
i see only brilliance shining on center stage.


what we see, the other cannot
our vision skewed by life’s experiences,
neither one perfect, neither one weak
holding hands, holding hearts
walking along and through the wings of this theatrical play we call life,
each one taking turns leading,
being a clear lens for the other.
pas de deux

pas de deux

    Very good, and justifies the picture well.

        You’re very welcome, it was a very deep poem, and poems help one to express their selves so they do not fall victim to repression, which in turn leads to depression; keep writing, and be strong.
