I Wear A Ring - Poem by Randy McClave
I wear a ring, but it doesn't mean that I am owned
But, it does mean that I am not alone,
I have my own body, for which I take care
And I too have a soul, but with another it I do share.
I have my own thoughts that I alone visualize
I do what I want, sometimes without thinking or compromise,
But, sometimes consciously I cannot do what I want to do
As my mind is still my own, but in my mind there are now two.
I was born with one heart and one brain
One can be given, and the other will keep a man honest and sane,
I was born all alone, as is every person's fate
But, that way I wasn't destined to die, so I was given a mate.
The ring that I wear, it shows that I have a companion
One who I will love and cherish, and will never desert or abandon,
We both have are our own needs and thoughts, and our own brains
Together we carry the same loads, and pull the very same chains.
The Bible quotes that we will live and die, with and without sin
So, as in heaven as on Earth we will meet once again,
Through a hard life on Earth with sadness and happiness and pain
My body is my own, but my soul, someone else will claim.
Upon my finger I wear just one solitary ring
One that makes some women jealous, and causes my heart to sing,
It is proof that the heart is whole, but the soul is still a half
It is so easy to figure out, and the brain needs not to do the math.
