Rusted Fences


Many with elitist dreams,
Are seldom ones with broader visions.
Could this be contributed to their D.N.A.?
Or is this just the way they feel it best to express,
Impressions to make in the hopes to be accepted?

The times 'and' minds of these lived days are changing,
So rapidly to leave behind a grandeur wished.
And how that is defined.
As a quality of life prioritized as one that is luxurized,
Seems to whet less an appeasing of an appetite to get.

And yet...
Many with elitist dreams,
Are seldom ones with broader visions.
It appears eyes have opened wider,
To self examine what's felt inside.

And recognized within is an acknowledged vacancy existing.
With more wishing to have it replaced to escape,
Away from meaningless things that dust.
With a seeking to touch a reality...
That frees them from the surroundings of rusted fences.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
