Judge the Poem

A colorful tapestry is every life
Painted in shades of fun and strife.
Every vivid shade of a bright tomorrow
Enhanced in depth by hues of sorrow.

Therefore it is every writer's goal
To explore the depth of mankind's soul.
Writing about the good, the bad or indifferent
Does not define his personal temperament.

To write about politics, abuse and shame
Religion, the crippled or the lame,
Is merely painting with different color hues
And does not always express personal views.

So when we try to answer the why
Of all the things we try, we die, we cry,
Remember that we are gloriously free
It's not imperative that we all agree.

So when you visit this wondrous site
Only read that in which you can delight.
Although I'm sure you already know it
Please judge the poem and not the poet.

    is'nt a shame when your best work only gets four comments? this piece is fantastic the lines the ideals. and i'm sure that as you come back to it there is that feeling of glory that theses words are yours. not to worry, i've seen it and judged it worthy to go to my favs. not because it's you, but because of the poem.

    I certainly agree with the theme in this poem. There are times when a distinction must be made regarding the speaker in the piece. The poem is normally about a situation and not the speaker depending on the voice and point of view used. Great job! ~Joseph

    Well Heidie I certainly must say that I totally agree with this poem but I must add that in your case either the poet or the poem would bring the highest mark and absolute respect - You and your poetry are gifts unto us all - god Bless you and yours always
