I'm Not The Only One ......

To have invested my all into a love unlimited
only to lose it too quickly after it falls to pieces
To have lost a sibling so becoming of one of
the child angels
To have yearned for the tastes of the world
and be tied to the hunger of home
I am not the only one

To have seen the underside of humankind
thats hidden from knowing eye's
To want beyond all wanting and to the leave
the having in the dust of wasted dreams
To have had a love and toss it aside ...an abandoning
of all that's decent
I'm not the only one.........

To know the difference between decency
in others and myself and to become that decency
To know anger and peace in the same moment
purety and passion in different lives
To be blinded by anger or passivity and to
wipe the tears from a lovers eyes
I am not the only one.......

No, ahorseback, you are not the only one, but how many others can put it so purely?

How many others can feel it so deeply?

How many others can express it so perfectly?

You reach so many hearts here on hubpages and maybe its the experiences you touch on here..."To have seen the underside of humankind thats hidden from knowing eye's"...."To know the difference between decency in others and myself and to become that decency".... that sets you apart.

I am in awe of your honesty and the beauty in your words.

Indeed, in those cases, you are not the only one. But the only one which came from you that is; your genuine heart, which full with understanding and love, as a father for your beautiful daughter. For her, you are the only one. For me, you are also the only one, the only poetic father I ever have. Lovely poem. Honesty always great ingredient in every works. And all of our friends above already said all. Have a nice day, dad.
