Walk Of Fame



Do you stand out or do you just blend in What is the name of your game? Do you exude confidence and self esteem Or is humility your claim to fame? One of those well known shrinking violets Sitting all by yourself in the bar Watching the whole world pass you by Envying the dance from afar Take heart my friend, there's place for us all In the overall scheme of things You may not have star on the Walk of Fame But you make your friendships sing Back in the old days, times were different But one thing that hasn't changed Those gentle souls have always be there To count on come sunshine or rain Do you stand out or do you just blend in What is the name of your game? © Jack Ellison 2013

    Hmmm... this is very interesting! I like to think I have a bit of both... Half the time I just wanna be a background character, while at the same time I wanna be the center of attention... I suppose as long as you have friends (real ones) than you should be doing fine. Good poem!

    Very nice poem. I like this a lot, astute observations and nicely constructed. Thoughtful and encouraging a delight to read.

    I must stand out a little... because they run away... Well, when Dragon's with me... Otherwise I'm an invisable old lady... The one that everyone tries not to see.... They look thru you at the mall... until Dragon tries to follow me into a store... Small isles are DEFINATELY NOT for him... LOL... Can we say Bull in China Shop? Hope you're feeling better soon.

    I can tell you are that sensitive soul my friend, someone that takes friendship seriously! You have a great name of your game Jack...many say I have a good one (name of my game) for myself, I wouldn't know for certain, but I try to be the best person that I can be! Like you we both reach out to people and do our best to help! We dance to the music of life, but with an uptempo and joyful step! This is a wonderful poem my friend! I loved reading this piece this morning! Great Work!!
