Rotations (by guest poet David Wilkins)

This poem is written by a dear friend David. He is presently in High School and has many plans for the future. I hope he realizes his dreams. I know he would love your feedback and comments. This is his first shot at what I hope is a long line of creative expression.

Lots of things are a mystery to me
Like the rotation of the earth and laws of gravity
but one thing I know without needing to see
is that because of you I can be who I need to be
why this life has to be unwilling to believe in this
thing called love simply cuz it can’t be seen
is a mystery to me
just like my life when I walked without your light
but our light remains
and we are desperate to fight through the troubles
and we have nothing to gain
you don’t know why but I hold me to blame
you ask me why and say it’s not the same
you cry foul and life’s not fair
but if there is one thing I learned in the time we shared
its that life’s not fair
it put you with me and let me have the times we share
I truly hope your perfect match
can understand what I could never grasp
you’re a prize not a piece of trash
I was a prince without
worth diamonds made of dirt
eyes like glass
a facade before the class
because I know
without needing to see
you are like the rotation of the earth and the laws of gravity
you’re a complex creature down to the core
but this is something you know
without needing to hear more
so I guess I should come out and say I love you
will you let me stay?

      1. Elena说道:/ It is true that technology can be an enebalr, just as it is true that it can merely create efficiencies by automating paper. That result tends to come from the way technology is implemented, and the level of strategic thinking that is used in designing the technology approach. All too often, HR professionals run from technology rather than embrace it as a useful tool to accomplish strategic HR. As a result, the slow pace of evolution happens as HR is dragged into the computer age. If our profession would be more professional and embrace technology as a tool rather than an enemy, we could well see a more collaborative development effort and more rapid leap into a strategic future. Technology doesn’t replace the personal touch, but it makes broader reach possible and enables a vastly greater population. HR should embrace those capabilities rather than begrudgingly accept them.


  1. What better way to express love, than by way of a poem!
    David has done this beautifully… The complexities that unravel in one’s own mind has been expressed so perfectly!!! And lastly, the glint of hope, making you say out the most significant 3 words, and asking if it can be reciprocated – WOW!!!

    I hope David continues to write his lovely poetry… I really hope!!!
