Diamonds In The Rough - Poem by Adryan Barnathan

Into the caverns of space and time
we are the keepers of great stories
like priceless jewels
buried in dark layers of soil and stone
we are here to live and love
and assist others by creating
new visions to inspire

What kind of world we live in tomorrow
depends upon the stories we weave
We are the light that shines
to guide those who will live after us

    We are the custodians not just of past success but bear the burden of mistakes from which we never learn.Why should we not be optimistic and encourage our contemporaries to continue and wear the mantel of our Best endeavours.
    You are singing my tune Adrienne.

    Aisha. It is ironic that I just commented on your poem, ''The way you smell''
    UR 2 counted in.

    This is beautiful. I don't count myself as one of those you mention, but I am honoured to be among them! Peace, Aisha (Report) Reply
