Who Am I? - Poem by Romeo Della Valle

I am the leftovers of yesterday,
Today's joy and sorrow
And maybe the source of inspiration
For unknown writers of tomorrow...
Uncertain of my own destination,
Only you and the Lord
May have a clear answer
For this puzzle of my life...

Yesterday: a poet, lover and dancer,
Today: old, tired and facing a strife
And tomorrow: singing to the world
Through somebody else, perhaps,
But still sending my message of love,
Always humble like the one above...

I am the color of a rainbow's end,
Camouflaged by light,
Blending into blue sparkling patterns,
Made sandy bright,
Leaving a trace of footprints, then,
I am gone with the tide...

*Dedicated to all my poet friends in PH and PF...

    Wow again! Your words make me feel like when I am listening to a good song that takes me away to that place.... I commend your skills. Rated it a 10! ! ! Keep writing. Isn't funny how individuals are so different but when you read poetry it takes on a whole new form. (Report)Reply

    'I am the color of rainbow'end....' What a sparkling imagery! Certainly you have a lot of talent to raise the question about your own existence in such a remarkable way.
    I liked the poem for its style and thoughts.
    Very poignant indeed.
