Need For Love - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak
Wondering how life could have progressed this far in
sixty-five years, having a lifetime of experiences
all in one being.
A truly amazing feat, not believing that all this time
has already passed me by and I really haven't anything
to show for it.
Only pages and pages of poetry in hundreds of poetry
journals, filling them all with feelings, emotions,
experiences, family, friends, thoughts and ideas.
All through the years what else could a mere poet have
done in life, being born into poverty, having no past,
present or future in fields of rich and famous people.
Yet, living in the beauty of nature as one, touched
and loved by God and no other, always being immersed
in a bluened light where no one else can come join me.
A wonderful and peaceful experience, away from people
and their cruel insistence, trying to make me always
unhappy with their lies.
Failing at their evil purposes because God has always
protected and kept me safe from their cruelty, for only
when I felt the need for love was I ever hurt by others
