Member Monday: Marie A. Warner, The Game

The Game

I came upon a truth today

It was quiet at first

But then it ran in to me straight away


It had been buried under layers

Of color coordinated clothing, healthy weight,

Frosted hair and a countenance that I could situate


It showed up in a game that we all could play

One that would push the truth up in such a way

That I could see, hear and feel

And value what it would reveal


It was different for me, or maybe it was the same

It gave me a mirror

And as I said it I could hear

The meaning that directed me for so many years


I was eager to share it with others

For I knew as I said it

It would pull out the weed

The one that had poisoned my heart from its true need


The need to be connected

To others in heart

To let down my guard

So I could be a part


A part of this world that we all do share

The one that has become somewhat dark in despair

It helped me decide to turn on my light

To share it with others, to make it more bright


To help build the message

It is not too late

I can join in and appreciate
