Casting Pearls Before Swine

a man polishes
his bluntness with pain
his humanity sharpened
the more
with his failures
his sight seeing more
and better in
the darkness of his
soul
from his tears
are made the pearls
and he must reflect
through poetry
whether all these are in vain
like pearls cast
before all swine
