TUCKED AWAY… a poem

man sitting on white concrete building during daytime

While I ponder the pages

Piqued and persuaded

To go just a little bit more

It is there that I find

In the corners of my mind

What my life has been longing for

Tucked away neatly

Not wrapped with a bow

Was solace, alive and well

Patiently waiting

For me to discover

Then go out in the world and tell

Tell of the truth

Of kindness and love

Embracing the differences, we see

A lesson so old

Again, to be told

By a simple man like me
