Shallow

Shallow beneath the skin of one whom robs dreams of another soul
For the one whom is chosen may take away the glow 

underneath the skin lies a shallow giver of sins 
the depth within lives a shallow existence fueled by fear

fear that another may out shine the shallow light 
why does one even wish to fight.. so shallow

ignites the solace of awareness around and grasp the right of another, so shallow
Dwelling within a secret shallow prodigy

     ~ shallow as the grave itself
 may all others be cast to the gallows

for the one seeking Fame 
the one so Shallow.. 

Many a wealthy men seeking moral values, so shallow
incapable of receiving any love given except the reflection of self ,  so shallow.

How can anyone help the one so shallow 
unless trading their own integrity for shallow acceptance 

comes with a high price , associated with shallow ~

    Thank-you Harry~ This is such a compliment from a talented writer , I will be on and off the soup. Mostly writing poetry once in a while, if I do not respond to anyone right away.

    This was so well expressed, that I could feel the deep emotions toward these kinds of people. Unfortunately, I grew up knowing a shallow person just like this. He was supposed to be a father figure to me, yet he bullied me constantly. Then, I discovered poetry, which helped me to escape it. Great work, Shanity!...Thank you for the kind comments, and for honoring me in your contest!
