Vessel we carry

Each one of us has a special unique throne
In this vast kingdom of human form
A vessel is given to accumulate treasure
Which sovereignty being measured                                        

First early years of reign, 
A feather of a butterfly the vessel weighs 
Playhouse fun with bow and arrows                          
Nursery rhymes of fairies and gnomes. 

As our days extend through the adolescent arch
To the battle field that grownups march
Store virtues and vices the treasures craft 
Not knowing the vessel heave fast

The day is getting closer to hand over the throne
This sovereignty is temporary own
Have to return in the same form to our Lord
With a clean vessel, completing the mission forced

Need a moment of silence, 
Sight with wise guidance.

    Yes, if you look inside you, for moment you can see all the rubbish we think has values. Thank you for your comment

    Dearest Manel, your poem has an overtone of metaphysical reality! It is thought-provocking and uplifting! Great work indeed! Thank you!
