Stay Gold!!!(One Shot Wednesday)



Scarred soul I dwell amongst the hopefuls..
Their paths lighted,mine's in darkness.
Whose world is true?Theirs or mine?

Pained heart I dwell amongst the joyfuls.
Their eyes filled with smiles,mine with sadness.
Whose world survives?Theirs or mine?

If this is my fate,I defy it.
With my own hands I will draw it.
If this is my destiny,I deny it!
With my own hands I will mould it.

For it is not for men to deem that I be worthless.
When I can shine like gold and be priceless.

Bold and beautiful words. "It is not for men to deem that I be worthless. When I can shine like gold and be priceless." I love that line. Well said, June, well said indeed.

Saw a little of everything in here. Loved the idea of determining your own value, it is a skill not taught nearly enough in this world.

This is one of your better written pieces J_B. I like it.

"If this is my fate,I defy it"
"If this is my destiny,I deny it"
"For it is not for men to deem that I be worthless"

Well done!

Well written in deed. You are 24 carat gold.

"Stay gold, Pony Boy." (LOL!)

All that glitters may not be gold, but this One SHot glitters all the same.

June...this has a timelessness to it that reminds me of the beautiful poetry of Enheduanna who lived around 2300 BCE...

Temple goddesses who were always having to defend their roles and place ...existence....from men.

Beautiful, deep and enduring poetry, June.
