To Whom Do You Serve? - Poem by Michael Hopkins
Oh, such tenderness
Within the human spirit
To whom do you serve?
Poet's Notes about The Poem
Note:The first two verses of this poem were inspired and came directly to me a few days ago after watching a movie in which one of the main characters was a very sweet, sensitive and kind person which is a rarity in our world of socially engineered mental illness and a long list of genders. I tried 4 different versions of the 3rd line but none were right in my mind.I thought to have patience and wait for a week or even a month if necessary and had faith the final verse would come to me eventually. While walking today, the 18th of March,2019 the words came to me.Luckily, I carry paper and pen on me for occasions as this. I wrote the entire poem out and published it today, the 18th of March 2019 in the haiku style of poetry.
