if i believed in dieties
you would be like one to me
a choice of gods, i’d opt for one
soft and golden like the sun
but gods get followers thru fear
respect and love that’s commandeered
and i’m not one who wants to go
and reach so high or sink so low
i’ve never felt much reverence
or seen a holy countenance
but i saw your face by candlelight
and swear no god could smile as bright
i saw your face one early morn
and swear no god could be as warm
Thank you for reading my book.

At some point in a writer's life he inevitably tries his hand at writing poetry. This usually occurs at an early age when he either hopes to impress an out-of-reach girl or because he's fallen under the delusion that everything matters and he must contribute his two cents to the subject. Those with sense file these efforts in a secret place and do not inflict them on the public. Others lack such humility. If there is any value in exposing these undertakings, it's to show that everyone was young once, and that beauty, truth, and meaning are to be found in the eye (rather than the mind) of the beholder.
