Getting Through : Creative Writing

My approach to this:

mirror of my old self
spring of my youth
root replanted
seed flourished
adopted baby picture --- redeveloped

hand that plowed another man's field
body that loved another man’s wife
heart that followed man’s call
mind that prayed another man’s request
feet that followed another man’s path
neck that exposed another man’s danger
skin that discovered another man’s fantasy
scalp that shed another dead man’s hair
tongue that spoke another dead man’s lie “pet brew”
tears that dried and vanished from another man’s cry

wound that spilled another god’s blood
sweat that polished another prophet’s dream
fingers that typed another child’s story
stomach that processed another man’s meal
muscles that ached from another’s game
wrinkles that forced another spirit’s smile
forehead that burned from another world’s sun
lungs that breathed another’s breath of hot air
eyes that beheld another burning bush
hand that distributed another machine’s product

cared for another family’s daughter
taught another kind of truth
received another man’s correction
shoulders supported another lifestyle
fought for
fought against

and then switched off another life based on:

one goal expressed
in dozens of languages

pursued in hundreds of mediums
by thousands of people

through interpretation of tens of thousands of revelations

based on the heritage of one, and one’s family

Today this reflection of yesterday's shadow is not here nor there, not gone, nor present

Simply THAT without the OTHER

Your writing has improved greatly since you started posting, Cultinvator, I don't even avoid your articles anymore.

Partly I think maybe you finally figured out how to use the "return" key, but also the content seems better.

Keep it up, dude.

Weekly Poll

What should the weekly poll be changed to?

 The every so often poll.

 The semi-anual poll.

 Whenever the editor gets to it poll.

 The poll you never heard about because you have never looked at previous polls which really means the polls that never got posted.

 The out dated poll.

 The who really gives a crap poll.
