A Man Looks Into A Mirror And Asks

Poem By Matthew Holloway

A man looks into a mirror and asks
~
All the wealth of man
Could not satisfy my hungriest desires
That which I dream and seek of
The love of a good heart
And loyalty of a gentle soul
That friends and lovers
Are named and known
Therein lays life's breath
And there a beautiful truth
~
Poets and artists
Have seen and celebrated
The raw untarnished emotion
Of looking into a world
Only to embrace its essence
To sing out of its beauty
Some in quiet wonder
Watch patiently
~
The kiss of the grape vine
Pours into many a glass
To quell the simmering madness
That's others do not understand
And water washes away
The impurity of morning
To bring fresh life once more
To the eyes reopened
~
How wonderfully human
It is seeing something beautiful
In the darkest throws of life
The loss and sorrow
How so many have wept
And yet become inspired
To live
~
Give me not wealth
Nor glory
No power to command
Just my words
My love and loyalty
And take care
