There are little things in all of us
Just minute little details
That make us who we are
And some of us call those imperfections
Some of us call those blessings
And some call them the unknown

The unknown is scary in itself
a little on the edge of thought
Not wanting to be brought to the front
Lingering like a snow flake on the window
Only to disappear from the warmth
Like a wink in passing

Uncertainty in contact is fear
Fear is the manifestation of hope
But the realization of failure right around the corner
That is why we listen to butterflies
Fluttering away in are stomachs
When we make contact in flesh
But why we flee from the contact of soul

The soul is a window into truth
The soul tells no lies
It's like the real world that way
Not the world of lights and film
But of the one behind the other window
The one of glass by your side
That tells no lies
And hides no pain
From all who care to look through it's panes

When it comes down to it though
The world is what drives us all
The bright light of ambition
The cool well of hope
The spring day of success
These rewards make us go for it all
The butterflies fly away
And the pain subsides
And love fills the soul
Fills the mind
Fills the heart
Fills the world
These are the little things in all of us

WOW!!! This is just totally awesome! I had to read this poem a couple times...each time coming away with a new angle on it. I loved the first stanza...I tend to think the little imperfections of each of us is what makes us special, and stand out from everyone else. I also loved the part of the poem where you talked about the human soul. You were so on the money with the part where you said that the human soul has no windows and can not lie!
Thank you so much for sharing.
