Life is all I know
But do I know life?
Can one truly know life?

Life
With all its mysteries and intrigue
With closed doors and locked cages
With enticing poisons and precious petals

The beauty
Of the shining lights of an ever surging city
Or the glowing mysticals of a city forever put to rest

The tragedy
Of a young bird's mangled body
Picturesque in the terribleness of the deed

A broken glass
Shining and twinkling silently along the stones
Waiting for an unknowing soul
To pierce themselves
And release beauty

The darkest corners
Holding the brightest lights
Stronger than flashes found in sunlight
Always somehow more beautiful
And yet always somehow more hideous

Life
So terrible in its magic
And so heartbreaking in its truth

The mysteries and wonder and terror
The true beauty
Of our world

Of Life

~~ You have hit all of it right on the mark. You have skillfully defined all that I know of life and it is right, it is beauty, it is ugliness, it is birth, it is death, it is light, it is darkness and in between it is Shadows.I am going to try to get this piece some of the attention it deserves so I am featuring it under Art That Moves Me. Love this! ~~

always,
