When The Signature Becomes An Autograph

Just as the mirror
reciprocates all gestures given;
And such an aura
replicates the time
through which this journey
has been carved but framed
We stand erect & poised
Not for this moment
But assumingly
for the heralded spectra
that stir us up, with confidence
day by day & time & time again

Until the signature becomes an autograph;
literally not as in christened by word,
but by efforts to which new tasks
have been taken
And foreign mantles have been
handed over for succession

Until the mirror we face each dawn,
to whisper those crafted words;
brimming with assonance but paradoxical
Presents itself as a piazza
filled with sea of people;
conscious-ready to relish
To the anvils of their ears
a reception of life told through words

Not mere words
Words that would dance
should they be assigned to dance

When the signature becomes an autograph
And the masses sojourn to stand not
akimbo but on revised paths;
It's then that the pen solely becomes
mightier than the sword

When the signature finally becomes
an autograph
