The Same Page

Mine is made from true bark and
drawn from an ink pen with a feather
plucked from an eagle held proud
and strong.

Yours is from ball point pen and cold,
perfect, machine lined paper carefully
manufactured for the masses
to behold.

Mine carries proudly its ancestrial smile
laced with mistaken words and
misunderstood moments spread across
its pages.

Yours carries all the guilt of childhood and
flashes of freedom and looser times
which glow in its jeweled clad
gypsy ways.

Both covers carry scars and nicks with
thready edges on loosely bound leather.
So, why is it that we can never be
on the same page even when things
seem so perfect and delightful for
the other?

  It is called individuality my Friend
I am not saying that individuality is 100 percent good
To many people are afraid to let others into there life
I believe they are afraid they will be hurt again
If only we could as a race realize just how easy world peace and love for our fellow man is
As The Beatles said
All You Need is Love
God Bless

  Well done. His cold and shallow it seems words mean nothing next to yours that have true meaning. Not on the same page because you are in different books...just there is a similar theme. Sorry...rambling...nonesensical. Great poem, I enjoyed it.

  i have never given a WOW! to anyone on this site before but this poem grabs me by the throat. It just shows the difference in something as simple as a book,but on the other hand people are just the same. Some are filled with dust and others are brand new. Relationships are the same way, just as no book is the same,each one tells a different story and resembles different characters, and some characters just can't be on one page together, like the wolf and little red riding hood. well i like this alot, this is definitly a winner.
