too many damn curtains were drawn...too much overlooked...i was raised catholic..i was an altar boy..not an abused one luckily...but i feel for those young people...and i despise the cover ups...the moving of priests to different dioceses---the sweeping under the rug...shame on them.
god, this poem is powerful good...gentle men who are far from gentlemen.
Were you refering to the blindness of the Priests to the sins within the Priesthood when you said "Open your eyes, and close the curtain instead of hearing others sins- look at theirs? They represent a false 'victor', such a truthful and profoundly stirring thought and so well done. I hope "I" understood you! I feel for those who do not spent time reading until the message speaks to them, at least this was the message that came to my heart. I hope i am right. A great piece this needs to be framed and shouted on the mountain tops.
hmm. to me it looks like your saying church leaders arent always the holy ones? hmm. well i dont understand anything so it doesnt matter. "open your eyes and close the curtain.." makes me think. lovely.
"I dont know " poems are cool...I do that sometimes too. Just write what comes to mind. It can make go, "Whoa! Whats that all about???" I like the verse "Open your eyes and close the curtain." REminds me of looking out a window trying to find something and going blind looking for it because if you were able to close the curtain you would find that its already something you have inside. Just a thought...
Aha, did the priest thing enter into your mind when you wrote this? Actually, this is a fascinating little piece if that's really what you were getting at. Sometimes, I find, when writing we have this total thought in mind, yet when others read it, they install totally different view points. This is what I gleaned from it. Please let me know if I was right. Very interesting Carol
I don't know what this is about, but I have some Ideas.. When I saw you put Victor, oh boy that brought memories into my head. My friend has a huge big crush on a guy named Victor.. Im sorry I didn't quite get it.. But I would love to hear what it is about.. It sounds interesting.. But usually the interesting ones get me so confused and puzzeled. Than I draw a blank.. Sorry stephanie
You misspelled gentleman it came out as genleman. I don't have really anything to say besides that. Way to speak out on a hot topic. We need more people to write about things that matter instead of how their boyfriend sucks, and school blows. Nice job.
