What Souls Hope To Find

An abundance of denial…

  your mind turns away

What spirit embraces,

  wealth hides and delays

 

        “The dignity of the old man

           in worn tattered clothes 

         Frayed pants covering high

           button shoes, but not toes

 

         “He wanders among us

            just over the line

          As eyes fail to see

           what souls hope to find”

       

An elegance to rival

  your white tie and tails

Where life now stripped free

  of false richness—prevails

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: February, 2016)
