your neighbor

your neighbor

if a destruction was to come into existence
would you separate yourself from your neighbor?
would you value them as your own?
do they know your weaknesses
so they can be your strength through a storm?
if a fire were to burn your eyes
it could be a neighbor with important eyes to guide you
they could be the gentle hands to carry you
when air doesn't break your fall
there is "necessary" in this needing to have
as skin is to bone
and all that it homes in between
keeping precious in the works of life
how does your neighbor today?
so you can do for your neighbor tomorrow

I like the poem I like the title, the way it was put together the meaning and all it is saying, of course not to overlook the fact that it could be a very nice song just about life's exeperiences itself. Wish you well. grecowong@yahoo.com

Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.

Plato (BC 427-BC 347) Greek philosopher.
