Metaphorically Speaking

This poem is dedicated to a special far away friend - Brandden Blackwell. We became so close before we actually met. So close, yet so far away - never around, yet always there - It's kind of like describing a metaphoric friend. Thanks, Brandden for inspiring the artistic flair we will forever share.
Metaphorically Speaking Metaphorically speaking We find life is just as such Not giving facts precisely And meaning not as much Speaking in forms of reference Searching to define what is heard It suggestively leads us to believe It was really meant in other words For the analogy of something other A figure of speech is produced for it It is given with just so many words Even beating around the bush a bit There is such a variety of life about May be why facts aren’t given to all As some may take it the wrong way To certainly cause their downfall Every insinuation or symbolization You will find several points of view Where there are just so many others To view way differently than you So we must be careful to others Of what we say or rather imply We will be judged for our words On judgment day when we die Many times in the matter of love It is not always honestly expressed How someone’s heart really feels Then the joy is lost and depressed As we verify and clarify in life Searching to find what is true There is nothing as it really seems The bible is full of metaphors too God says we are to test all things Then to hold fast to what is good As written in 1 Thessalonians 5:21 We will then find what we should A metaphorically speaking life Must be truly meant to be For when the truth is found You will surely be set free Florence McMillian (Flo)

Excellent words in summation Florence, and a splendid rendering of the metaphor in it many forms, most importantly that they serve to set us free, free from any misinterpretation or doubt. BRAVO my dear! Best wishes, Keith 7
