    MaryAnne,

    All you write is beautiful and this poem is that too, although catching on to metaphors is not my forte.

    I have a feeling it is about someone in your life who has in some way dissapointed you, or maybe someone from tv, church..

    You have to know, girl, all people are flawed and we are intended to be. We come here to learn and we learn most from mistakes and difficult situations. Life is not meant to be a cake walk.

    Only God is perfect and only He is allowed to pass judgement upon others. When you realize other people are imperfect, realize you are not perfect as well, no one is.

    Don't put any mortal on a pedestal. We are supposed to worship only one entity: God.

    *hugs*

    I guess people really looked so much further beyond words than I do. Anyways, this was a great write no matter how short it was it was a great poem and you did well with it. Interesting word choice, too.

    Lol, Alfred.

    MaryAnne, thank you kindly for explaining this poem to me. I should have known that a sweet, innocent girl like you would not be using metaphors and that this was just a poem, like Tempsy stated also:)

    *hugs*
