Some of Us

By IrisGF, Birmingham, AL

Some of us
Will gather together
Huddled mass
Disconnected web
Connected again
To reach back
Into the back corners of memory
And to contrast the before
With the glaring now
(Comparisons are rare jewels,
Uncommon waste)
We’ll see that
Some of us
Will reach our dreams
Snatch our star out of the horizons
Swallow it up before someone else can
“I told you so” balancing wickedly
On the edge of some of our lips
Some of us
Will realize
Dreams are dreams
Pillows are pillows
A blanket is just soft cloth
Stitches sewing up its skin
And a job isn’t always what you love
