Figment

Might I be
a figment
in someone
else's mind
a small
little iota
of fraction
of a timed
world?
A person
as complete
as any
Adam and Eve
yet conceived
as being
a molecule
of space.
Designed
with a mind
full of
expressive
worth
held back
by average
reality
of alias's
demise.
Yes, I may be
a figment
in someone
else's mind
perhaps
a passing
thought or
notion in space,
but, I am
as real
as
the person's
body I occupy.

Jeannie~
I also like this.
Simple and yet complete.
Made me think ...
and that's a good thing.
Thank you for sharing.

Very nice.. I wanted to say more but it's too late for me to think straight... but the jist of what I wanted to say was that I sometimes wonder if I'm more than a figment or an "iota" myself.

I think we all play an important role... some of us just get credit for our roles sooner in life than others. =)

I enjoyed reading this one*S*



 The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, not the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship."

--Ralph Waldo Emerson
