Riding the coattails
of someone else's success,
as their success is reached
as their goals are attained.
Amnesia develops quickly
leaving you in the cold,
coats are discarded,
leaving you naked to the world.
Wear different hats,
or ball caps in today's fashion,
prove you are in control
of what is your true destiny.
Never stray from your beliefs,
always love. . . . the you,
life is not tailor made
to meet our daily human needs.
Something will always be cloaked
in the mystery of life,
life is an enigma
never to be solved. . . dress warm.
Yes. . . please dress accordingly
while traveling life's road,
no matter what the elements
throw at you on the journey of life.
Armani, Versace, Levi's, Hilfiger,
Aeropostale, Wrangler, Carbon,
camouflage, silk, satin,
lace or comfortable cotton.
None of these sincerely determine
your human compassion for life,
only a façade to soothe public opinion,
never let fashion change who you are.
Timothy Michael DiVito c1996
