Original Works by Pat J. Schulz :From her book: Metamorphosis: A Life Journey
Author’s Note Excerpt: “Growth is not an easy thing – we have growing pains. But, when you come into your knowing, each experience of pain, joy, love and disillusionment can be placed into its proper perspective. What you gain from it all is yours. What you gain is uniquely you …”
A Pedal is Formed
We pretend he does not exist
Society names him an outcast
Yet, his spirit remains in our midst.
He feels like you and I
His blood flows and flesh is real
Though because of our ignorance
His identity he must conceal.
This man without a face
Whose kindness generates fear
What a pity he is
To those who lurk and lear.
They know not the man
Nor the knowledge he holds
It is society’s loss
For his riches are sealed untold.
Be careful how you treat a stranger
For within a friend may lie Beyond
the vacancies of those
Unidentified, distant eyes.
