FAMOUS (A Poem)

A poem that explains the deceit of Fame that makes people live fake so they can maintain a status quo; and the value of true relationship and living that break those walls down…

FAMOUS – By James George
I knew it was you alright
The moment I smelt it in the room
The shroud of loneliness as it loomed
I looked around and was right

There you were standing in the rear
Beaming smiles ear to ear
Stringing connections among all here
Yet standing alone like a lily in mire

I’m sure I know you
The one men like to pursue
A glistening mirage seen in the distance
The object of man’s applauding stance

But you are not very here as they think
Slipping through fingers and greasing palms
Here comes everybody’s man” says your man
But you’re gone and he’s all alone in a blink

Being famous is son to achievements
But it is not a cure for loneliness
How can they be your true friends
Who are stringed only to your assets?

They’ll give applauds for a job well done
And throw stones at the same now known
But eyes who see through net worth without judging
Can prove a fortress in the day it gets lonely.
