I Took A Knee To Tie My Shoe - Poem by stephanie mellisa kievaughan

good thing to have
is the gift to know
when the poem is spun
when to turn off the flow
and when things are done.
you have to listen
to your heart
where it is
From Whence it came
and where it fancies
Most to be.
be it physically
or tangibly,
or emotionally,
what it found,
and what it did
likened unto a pro
or a master
don't you know
all the while
taming your id
like the shrew.
who dug a hole
from to gaze upon
the likes of you
while you bowed
to tie your shoe.
asking? your self.
who is the king here?
is it me that bows to you.
The King of all the shrews.
Or is it You who Bows to me
The Humble Queen
of all the Shrews.

    you have to listen
    to your heart
    where it is
    From Whence it came
    and where it fancies....physical, emotional, wishes, dreams, who is the king here?

    We all need practice bowing
    for there comes a day when every knee shall bow before God.
    Thanks for sharing, Stephanie, may God bless you in all things!

    I like the way it flows like a song, I never know when a poem is done, I usually go with the flow and think about it later when I think I'm done. Sometimes it is like the words come from somewhere else above, who knows where from. (Report) Reply

    you have to listen
    to your heart
    where it is
    From Whence it came
    and where it fancies
    Most to be. it is really original in terms, language, idea and vision. thank you dear.

    when one ask's you what do you fancy. it means what do you crave the most if ask in reference to food or drink or entertainment. or what ever you desire according to the context of the original query.

    exactly what i intebded true poets to decode and decipher from it. we are seemingly very like minded.
