Layers of the onion

Meaning, ever bending, never ending-ly open to changing it's mind and opinions,
by moving around words and pulling and pushing in different directions,
until everything changes, rearranges pages in history
just for the mystery to begin again
with new songs, new players and these layers and layers
of summits and new beginnings. 
Of openings back to where we came in.
New meanings are foaming and forming 
within the fatted belly of doing and screwing until done.
Come watch a new one get sprung.
A new shape to take place of the old, behold
and believe in your prayers.
They keep coming these layers and layers 
and faces of women and men.
Turn around just to begin again.

    Another beauty by you! The subtle rhyme throughout gave this poem such a unique rhythm. I love that your poems really make the reader THINK. You definitely had me thinking about how quickly things change in this day and age. It also brought to mind political correctness and how ridiculous many new terms are. I'm adding this poem to my favourites.

    Welcome to Poetry Soup! I very much relate to this poem as I'm sure many others do as well. Love the intricate puzzle of visuals and thoughts this poem releases from reading it - Gr8 write - Shaz
