Personal Strength

Poetry of the canvas
paint the body of words
wordless in body
speechless everything
until you weep
or laugh

I said its a mindset
you said no its cultural
a Culture shock
i said
no its still personal
a battle within
it’s heart break
or heart strong –
it’s a mind set

The dream world
the surreal
higher plain
another dimension
death b4 death
after death
the dyslexic genius
the individual
the cultured group en masse
not ready….but a few
a forever thought imaginings
