Poem Commentary

a poem about self examination.


Up and down the corridors of my mind.

Those dim and dusty hallways of all I've left behind.

I see defeats, trials and victories.

However small to you.

They make up who I am, so don't judge.

You have no clue.


Deep within the labyrinth of my mind.

Like the Minotaur of legend. I find.

Each turn is an adventure or a wall.

Seems every day I revisit them all.


In search of a way out. But do I really want to go?

This is my home after all.

The hallways and passages of my soul.

And deep within me what , pray tell, do I see?


I find the baby that became the man inside of me.

He is lonely but assured of love divine.

A love like he has never known.

On this plane of woe and moan.


I still must search. For within.

There should be. Some turn, some path.

A trick or forgotten key.

That I may use.


No there is no trick to make it along the road.

Simply follow the savior and make it home.

Jesus is along the path with a lamp to light

my way. So now I can make it home.


Phil G. Inman Sr. 2010

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
