Cleared Of Thick Brush And Obstacles


On paths cleared of thick brush,
And obstacles presented...
I have never been one to resent those making attempts,
To diminish my intentions, sacrifices or sentiments.

Before I walked upon paths I had created,
No one where I laid my steps...
Knew then where they were placed.

But today not only have I cleared my own path,
I can be approached by those who critique...
With a knowing to believe,
It was I who made it easier for them to do it.

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
