Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our dark that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people don\'t feel insecure around you.We are all meant to shine as children do. Its not just in some of us; its in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsiously give other people to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others

A bundle of roses lay on the dull concrete road.. beneath the open skies
trapped in a cracked rigid hole ..
In the loneliest fracture they fret.. in search of shelter and light
Red white and blue.. each beautiful and divine.
A stranger passed by and stopped in his tracks
He saw the roses.. and fixed into a trance
He contemplated which to choose.. red white or blue
For they each possessed a seductive scent and a relishing view
The stranger settled down sulking in doom
Little did he know that only one of them was true.
Be careful what you choose because the wrong may seem right
Look at the stranger who chose wrong for right
The gullable man mistakened a lie for the truth..
A holy, pure white he chose over of a deep, honest blue.
A petty loss for a learned cause..
All the stranger had left was a black deceiving rose
Becareful what you choose, be careful what you like
Because beauty is a mighty weapon that lies.

The author's comments:
This piece is very special to me. It was an air born product of spontaneity... I never knew what it was until it was complete. I hope people will see the true depth light and the subliminal as well as underlying element to this poem. This poem was born from love, so I hope you love it as well. :D
