Purpose and Meaning – The Only Story

The Only Story

The stranger with the sad eyes
is no stranger at all.

Deep within our DNA
familiar as a heart beat

Ignored for years and, yet,
within us from the start.

Speaking through our choices
flavoring our mourning

the silence in our dreams
the subtext of our days

a knowing that transcends
the way we think we know

The stranger’s story is the only story
the one we can not change

no matter what we do
or why we think we do it

  1. A curtain moved
    Before my heart unknown
    Something glimpsed
    Perhaps viewed
    In this poem
