Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

Everyday, to God I pray
For answers to Life's enigmas
Patience lays in wait to stay-
To cleanse our Social Stigmas
We pass the time in our idle Dreams:
Like fallen Stars in singing streams

    I like the play on words. Bravo Chan! If you get a chance check out my poem "You Can't" it deals with Social Stigmas.

    Chan The Man This is a very unique and brilliant write. We all want to find the answers to life's questions, but sometimes it just takes a while. Nicely done Thanks for the amazing comment on my Two Friends And A Puppy poem. Hugs

    And a mind. A mind you have. If you just take time and let your muse rhyme.

    Of course many times I have gone back to re-edit, but as far as adding to it, I rarely feel compelled to do so.

    Thank you for reading and reviewing, John. I am hearing this critique from several people, that they wish I would extend my pieces, but I have great difficulty with this. I would liken it to a painter. Did the Mona Lisa, for instance, need one more brush stroke, one more detail? I'm in no way suggesting this piece is a masterpiece (it's clearly not) and I probably should not juxtapose the two, but what I am saying is this: when a poem feels complete to me, it feels complete.

    I can complete this for a collaboration. I come highly recommended.
