Biped human


Man is biped without feathers,
If only he knew his potential reservoir.

He limits himself with his inaction,
If only he could follow his passion.

He looks outside,
If only he knew, its all engraved inside.

He can be better than yesterday,
If only he could work on his present state.

That is very profound. It is true we don't live up to our potential most of the time.

Blessings,

Denise

If only he knew, its all engraved inside."

Gabe just said, "Wow that was the best Monday ever, until next Monday". This is life in the Dierker home. And it all comes from the inside to the outside.

Thank you for your consistent and always well done poetry.
