THE WHEEL HAS COME FULL CIRCLE

What goes up must come down. No colors can define who you are. You may own a cart or limousine. We'll still reach the end when it is near. I may be poor today and eat from trash. Tomorrow, you can't tell. I'll earn some cash. The bed where you lie is soft and wide. I sleep at a sidewalk and the stars are my lamp. You wake up each morn' with a feast on your table While we are scavenging to fill stomachs when we're able. Our destiny isn't written in the stars. We work for a living to thrive in this life. Be thankful every morning you witness the sun And pray tonight that no one lives same as I. Wheels come in full circle,rolling round and round. Today you'll be on top, I am watching from the ground. Let us bear in our minds that we are better than birds. Our loving Father ensures each mouth is fed. Not even the smallest details can pass by His eyes. So plant a seed of kindness and reap a better life. sponsor:FRANK H. name of contest: SHAKESPEARE *5th Place winner

Great poem. If you don't mind me asking what influenced you to write this poem and also did imagery help you with this poem? If it did may I know why. (:

Lovely, great and exquisite.. Your expressions are already longing for a permanent stay in my head. I will definitely come visiting again, but for the main time, a 7 rating is exactly what you deserve.

Powerful but what comes with power must be restrained from line to line. What I mean is do not attack the reader in every line. Hold back a little bit then from time to time use your power. You can do this by altering your syllable count in each line as well as breaking up each set of thoughts into stanzas. Other than this, I feel you!

We can only live the life we have, but we do it to the best of our ability and karma really does happen. Great write, I love it. God Bless. D.

There is so much that is good in this poem, that I wish it could be refined with consistent meter and rhyme. It is begging to be a traditional poem. I like it Dr Neil Stewart McLeod
