One Little Look

A look.
Just one look provides
a muted glimpse into
the future.

Playing personal journeys
close to the vest,
they absorb knowledge
and exude attitude...
and wait their turn
in life.

Plans run amuck in their
young minds.
Thoughts, ideas
collide in differing
swings of momentum.

Mocking the man,
scorning establishment...
patiently abiding the day
when the balance of power
is passed on to them.

When the cask is full,
vim and vigor wield the sceptre
of strength and rule. But they
will look...
one little look
into eyes that burn
with passion
for the future.

Inspired by the students at McNally High School who sat through my presentation on poetry.

Linked for the patrons at the pub to enjoy.
