The Circle Of Life - Poem by Luis Alberto Riveros

In the path of life
there is faith followed by ovations
doubts surrounded with plights
but in between; different destinations

Some will take U-turns
to meet the neighbor’s journey,
others will follow their heart
while hearing the inner attorney
rant of not being smart

By choosing “black or white”
we will be blind to colors in the sky
blindness is for those who cannot see
the monochrome of doubts to live high

Love is not just a feeling
but mostly a time for giving
our life treasure to be shared
as you are, completely bared

Dare not to be “normal”
think out of the box
flying away from the flock
it is truly paranormal

The circle of life is our inner travel
the rest is talk and senseless cavil
opening doors or closing windows, is you call
as the time to express our true feelings unfold.
