A Small Lament not look away…
I am more than what you see… 
I have no claims or expectations.
I am more than innocence fleeing.. 
more than flesh and blood, but soul as well.

I am free of selfish wants, fear or greed …
I am like a fruit...on the fringe of fruition…
even though my skin is scared and dirty 
beneath this frayed and tag-rag dress.

I am the essence of this land and place….
yet placeless…the mirrored gaze 
of countless faces…reflecting the shine of my existence…
yet...I'm homeless in my home…without you today.

Can you say some words to me, 
words born from your heart…
that your lips can proclaim?

Today, I left a message for you 
inscribed within my eyes…the sweet of my smile.
and even though embosomed by despair…
these mere seconds of life... I celebrate…
no time to waste on bootless tears.

Oh how I long for the day when 
we'll transcend these mortal constraints.
Until then... I'm but a traceless, faceless gem...
waiting for you to turn and see me.
