If every man, ...ceased to hate and blame every other man for his own failures and shortcomings, we would see the end of every evil in the world, from war to backbiting. -Grace Metalious from PEYTON PLACE It happened on the fourth floor Where there is no one to console And every man feels sure he’s lost The heart of his own dancing soul It happened on the fourth floor Where intimacy quiets the spirit And candlelight muses are aware There is truth beyond their conscious It happened on the fourth floor Where gentle waves of compassion sing To those who share the blessings there Amid a forest of sweet dreams and ideas It happened on the fourth floor Where there are echoes of truths abiding Creating promises of love forevermore Praising God for His unending love It happened on the fourth floor Brothers and sisters and mothers and sons All came together to shine in the sun Beneath God’s touch of unconditional love The Fourth Floor of Nowhere Poetry Contest Sponsored by craig cornish September 15, 2020
