Outside of the left field

Outside of the left field,

Past all the greatnesses,

And all the littlenesses,

Past the milestones of great deeds,

And the cobblestones of  misdeeds,

Past all the I am’nesses,

And past the You are ‘nesses,

Sits the lonely, shy I,

Alone in the playground,

Seeking Love, Looking for Light,

In the nothingness of twilight,

When all have gone home,

And the solitary swing sways in the wind,

Like an imaginary friend gently swinging.

Looking for the light in others,

Wanting to be a light for others,

Looking to do good and seeking good,

Wanting to give and receive love.

The gentlest gifts of childhood,

Encased in the smiles of innocence,

And as quartz scintillates,

In the light of the setting sun,

In the mind’s eye past the shadows of time,

It shines like priceless diamonds.
