' Chop Suey (Odds And Ends) ' - Poem by Ency Bearis

you gathered all
the power of your body
and spirits
the skills
the talents
the guts
the patiences
the prayers
mixed them all
and cooked them
like chop suey
to beat the odds of life
to make life's good
but still
can never understand
why life and God
has disparity
except maybe from your loved ones
or maybe from your soul mate

    Beautiful. Just as taking a breath I finish reading the writing at once. Perhaps poet also has finished this poem this way. No strain of creation is their. but touches the deep.
