Some People Are Hollow

Updated on April 7, 2010

I Can See Through You Like A Window

You think you know someone until that day comes

When you don't see in the same light

You both take a stand and hold your ground

Who is Wrong?

Who is Right?

Other people will take sides

Only time will tell

Like a house of cards

Only the strongest house will survive

The simplest wind can bring you tumbling

Hours are spent

Making every card fit perfectly in position

The teedless task of putting your utmost precision to the test

Placing cards one on top of the others hoping and praying they will not fall

Stepping back and admiring your hard work and dedication to every microscopic detail

That distinguishes you from plain colors on the wall

Looking back and examining from every angle

A few relatives are blinded by there own insecurities and false premises

Some people come to watch

Friends and family take notice

Do they really know how much I HAVE SACRIFICED?

People will leave and my work of art stands alone and still

A one of its kind

Unique in many ways

Some people would say it was a waste of time

Others pass by without a look

There are a few who can marvel at all its effort and talent it took

My deck of cards stands taller than the rest

Who knows when the next breeze will come?

A victory for trying where no one else dared

Anything can make it crumble and plunge to the bottom

Where it will stay forever in its finally resting place

      Charlu I never get my cards to stand either. They fall soon after I try to get them higher.I think we have to love people for their good qualities and accept them as they are.I have enough trouble changing my faults.I am a working progress.Thanx for making tonight a fun night and you keep me reading.

      Great hub. People are sometimes hard to understand and then there are those that we wish we didn't when their true colors come out. Love the house of cards I wish I had the patience to do that. Maybe someday. Up and awesome.

      Yes, we all have a very different way at looking at life, I am surprised how they can change their demure at the drop of a hat. I am always surprised, but I love your house of cards...thumbs up

      MFB||| I learned long ago what it is to lose something really important that we all take for granted.Due to an accident as a kid I lost vision in one of my eyes.I can wear a contact and see with that eye today thanks to modern science.But if I don't wear the contact lens everything is a blurr in that one eye.So I see the world others can't see.Then I see nothing others will never know.I am truely blessed even when hurt so young.I can only give what I have and when thats gone I go into overtime giving.It is amazing how much you can still give when you thought you were on empty.I never feel hollow just exsausted.Have a good weekend and do something you haven't done for a long time.

      Your house of cards is the Taj Mahal here to many. And your writes are appreciated as well. Sometimes I feel hollow, when I can no longer give of myself to others because I am completely starving for some emotional nourishment. But we live in a world full of holow people, who only take note of their own imoportance, and offer a passing glance to what is important to others. I feel your pain, superb work here~~~
