A sprinkle of stardust,
a pinch of compassion on the earth.
A touch of human belief,
that all will be well with the world.
No magic, just an inherent search
for who we are supposed to be in society.
The mundane facts of life
lived by so many, enjoyed by so few,
seemingly an existence,
with hope of breathing the freshest air.
Like ants on a tedious path,
carrying four times the load to and fro.
Work ethic is no epiphany,
a realistic way to kiss the dreams of the night.
Just how long your fifteen minutes
of fame lasts depends on your wishing star.
To be born, to achieve, grow old,
to die, all in one short time span on a planet,
known as our human legacy,
a tarnished, yet brilliant journey of a lifetime.
Timothy Michael DiVito c1997
I have been writing poetry for 44 years. I began writing poetry when I was 15 years old and to this date I have written over 16,000 poems. I have had poems published in The San Fernando Journal, The Rag Mag, WYRD, The Cultural Reverence(e-magazine) and in Kiiroo(e-magazine), Mobius and the World Peace Anthology. I have over 1000 poems published in all. I also have a poetry page on Wix.com entitled anemotionaljourney.com. I also have written a Science Fiction/Fantasy novel entitled "The Blue Sphere" and I am currently working on three other books at the present time. The first is entitled "The Angel and the Witches, the second is "Once Upon A Halloween" and the third is "The Devil's Playground".
