Striving To Be Chosen

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 12:04 pm

As the glass gleams
brightly in your face
on a day in
the hot glaring sun
pick it up aware
of the edges not
to get cut letting your
eyes study deeply through
the cracks.

Study every crack
from the top to
the sides as you
notice the texture
from top to bottom
exposing the foundation
of all those tiny little
particles that one given day were
bonded together.

Every particle having earned its
right to bond with the whole was
once a member of the billions
walked over, picked over
in shovels, strainers, hands
and feet who were not selected
to rise above joining the
chosen who then left the beach
of toils.

Which particle do we
strive to be which
particle do we have
a vision to see
as ourselves are we
one worthy to be
chosen or do we falter as
a victim of our own
self erosion?

~Miguel
