Treasure Island

Looking Glass


manifestations of life
a continuous interplay
of natural forces,
what the mind perceives
is mirrored from the looking glass,
elevations of life
a rigorous path in its causes,
what the blind receives
is windowed like a shooting star,
revelations of life
a historical picture play
of natural forces,
what the kind forgives
is within the looking glass.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

theme: life is a matter beyond just existence. its basis is on the inner self and the personablility to urge for the accomplishment of a heart that serves its mind to fulfil its reach and talents as reflected from the physical body of our personal looking glass self. every kind of person that regards their thought and the actual is the one that follows their heart and mind, to pursue a mission of whatsoever need there be. life in its kindness is a journey that starts to end; spread your wings of life and fly like a bird, but walk with life and stick to your inner person. each person has a shadow that follows them to their dream and destiny, that rises and fall with the beholder, and fades away once the body has fallen to its death. reach out and touch your looking glass today, for tomorrow is (yet) another day.

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
