Pandora's Box

Poem By Lydia J. McFarland

How many secrets untold,
does one treasure chest hold
in the possession of Pandora's Box?

How long does it take for an inconspicuous
being to pry at you with its deceitful
treachery?

To knock and hash at your mind, To kick and
slash at your inner strength!

How long can you withstand this impulsive
demand?

Do we really harbor a conscience,
Or is it merely good versus evil?

Why, but who knows the answers untold,
except for the essence in Pandora's box.

Who has the key, to free us all from this
mortal pain and suffering?

Why, your curious mind and the soul of
Pandora's Box combined.

Strange As It May Seem

Strange as it may seem,
I do have these feelings.

I care for you so much,

The Bitter End

I'm jealous of your friends,
That golden bond, you all share.
I used to be envious of the way
the ladies would smile and stare.

Summary Of Phillippians 3: 12-20

I am not perfect, nor have I acquired all
of the skills required in order to enter
The Almighty's Kingdom.
I do not forget my past, nor do I dwell on it,

In Your Eyes

In your eyes, I see
a child longing to be free.
The child sees no color,
but feels we should love one another.

Held Captive By You

your words and inspiration
for they are like tender caresses,
on my brown skin,
your wisdom captivates my mind,
