ADULTHOOD - For Adult Contest


He sees the world, all passions fascinate
His palm is shown where some would hesitate
No fool, not he, or should he ever be
He does not live in lands of fantasy

His wealth is in his dream for all mankind
The starving will be fed, bellies and mind
All through his life he’ll hold no-one to blame
For similar as we are, none are the same

Like favoured flowers nurtured by his hand
The ugliness of man, he’ll understand
Through his words and more by attitude
He will forgive the craven and the rude

For life to him not be, some candy floss
He throws all rubbish out, and the dross
Listens to the child, the muses, those insane
Treats equally for need, thought, and pain

At times his heart besieged by doubtful will
His strength returns, with it, hope there still 
With actions easy, he may stimulate
A palm be shown where some would hesitate

    Beautiful, fluid the words. Wise, wonderful message. I like your take on the theme! I think stanza 4 captured the meaning of the picture in the contest page. I was trying that angle, but I guess our orientation, and our muse tends to come through in our writes for contests that tackle the deeper aspects of life. This is very good! Blessings for the contest. A 7. Kim :)
