The Inscrutable - Poem by Smoky Hoss

Can anyone
Ever know another?
Truly see at depth
The magnificent mystery of the other?
We look
We stare; but,
Do we comprehend
The wonder in there?
The image,
The soul;
How little we understand
Of what, physically, we are unable to show.
It's the spirit
We fail to see,
That great human link
The real connection, of you to me.

    Terrific write and very true. My mum always said no one ever knows some one else fully, and I believe this is what she meant. (Report) Reply

    In these times of the superficial, people are too busy criticizing what they think they see rather than looking for what is really there deep within. A brilliant and wise write. (Report) Reply

    A really great poem, if we did stop and truly looked
    into another it would blow our minds.
