The Real Me


Don't look at me;
Don't look at my looks
Don't look at my appearance
My flesh losing its sheen
Soon to be torn apart
Soon to be crashed
Soon to be strewn across
Soon to perish
At the hands of time

Dive deep into my soul
And see the brightness of sun
And feel the coolness of moon
And understand the dullness of stars
And muse upon the exactness of planets
Reflection of all such realities
Writ large in my soul
The centre of attraction
Always smiling and shining never to fall
Beautiful, imperishable and indestructible
The real me dwells in soul......

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
