What Is Truly Inside

David Altmejd

Michaengelo said – every block of stone

Has a statue hidden there inside

It is just for the artist to

Find it where it hides

 

We too,  often our true selves hide

Hoping that others won’t see

What we have buried deep inside

Because of our insecurity

 

We conceal our aspirations

Things – we truly want to be

Ignoring that deep inside

Our SELF wants to escape and  make itself free

 

For so long I did bury – my love affair with words

Wishing one day – that I might find the nerve

To let my composition

By the world to be heard

 

So in these few verses

Scribbled swiftly – to a prompt responding

May it be to you – your wake-up call

For your buried self’s absconding

 

Padre
