Wonder With Me (poem)

Tremble with me

Wonder with me

Everyone wants to know

What kind of person is he


Each star of success

Is a new hope reborn from its sleep

Which lightens the long lumbering night

With a dazzling display of thrills

Which he recalled so easily


Oh the things we can do

Such changes to warm warn out streets

People remembering to smile

Love affairs renewed in enchantments

Following his lead

The path of possibility


And on and on we went

Relighting the long lost forgot

Showing others it’s safe to follow their heart

It’s okay to be a star in the day

Just look at this marvel

He doesn’t flee


But where were we when he needed us

Through his beatings and neglect

We turned away from the all the cries

All the whys which went unanswered

Thank God for forgiveness

Wonder with me

Tremble with me

Music only

I am wondering, Martin. This is a yet another deep-thought poem that takes some .... deep thought. I sense a feeling of searching for an elusive and mysterious answer. I like it very much and find the poem is like a call to some forgotten memories or passion. It is calm and quiet, a bit mysterious. I will have to read it again. I bookmarked it so I can come back to it. Thanks for writing this.

Like Phyllis wrote, we are left to wonder who "he" is.

Is it the abuser who was abused as a child?

The music does not give a clue.

You make me have to "think" and frankly, it is too early in the morning

to ratchet my mind into gear.

I have to admit, when I read the third stanza, second line, I read it as,

"Such changes to warm warn out sheets". Told you I was not fully

There's something here. I am pondering, perhaps relating a bit. Very deep and meaningful.

Can we walk away from the truth in this? Very deep and touching!

I have seen people turn away, due to fear. It isn't right, but it is human nature. For those that stand up for the oppressed, it is a deep strength.
