retreat from hiding in a shell
for performing I shall

a part of me is on stage
as I write these words on this page

knowing that I have fed
minds of people that have read

useless as my words are
there meanings only go so far

caught in a world of phrases
things highlighted in popular phases

current is the state to see
timeless is where these poems should be

knowing that it maybe pertinent
on this and every continent

without sincerity of meaning
I must present my real being

for years, decades, centuries, they discover
it reminds all readers to be helpful to each other
