A Poem –The Thin Line


The line is thin, no wider than your thoughts

The line is short, no longer than your years

The line is twisted, no straighter than your values

Wealth won’t lengthen it nor make it broader

Beauty may ease the journey,

But the line remains while beauty fades

Faith can smooth the angles or drive you to the edge

All lines move ahead and back, rising and falling

Each is well worn, but fresh with your footprints

And if you are lucky your line will cross with others,

Ones who may share their line, their space, their adventure,

With your thin line

An original composition by the author of Ends and Beginnings


About ends and beginnings blog

I am a frustrated writer and poet waiting to be discovered. A stand-up philosopher performing on a street corner near you. A Christian with questions but I don’t want to hear your answers. A Buddhist with a bumper sticker on my truck to prove it. A collector of quotes. A grower of lettuce. The Patron Saint of earthworms who name their children after me. A cyclist whose big ass strains the seams of his Lycra bibs. I am American by birth, Southern by the grace of God. My goal in life is to leave an imprint on the lives of the people I love not a footprint on the earth. I am a son, a husband, a father composed of 65%-Oxygen, 18%-Carbon, 10%-Hydrogen, 3%-Nitrogen, 3%-Diet Coke and 1%-Oreo.
