Look Within by Markus Fleischmann

Creative Talents Unleashed

Come look into my eyes

Tell me what you see

Do you see my tears or my fears?

Do you see my hurt of the passing years?

Do you see my flaws?

Can you tell I’m screaming?

Or do you see me dreaming?

I dare you

Look into my eyes and peer

Into my soul

Tell me what you see

Am I broken or am I whole?

I’ll tell you what I see

When these eyes look back at me

I see a spirit that is wild and free

I see a shell of the former me

I see a dream that shattered

Leaving nothing but tatters

But what I see doesn’t matter to me

In my eyes I see a dreamer

Do you?

Take another look

Look deeper

That’s Where I Shall Be by Sue Lobo

Creative Talents Unleashed

It´s where the shadows dance with the lea of the land,

Confettied blooms in fields, strewn by God´s sweet hand,

It´s wherever you hear the cacophony of small dulcet birds,

And the million scents, of the myriads of sweet & wild herbs,

That´s where I shall be.

Where sun & moon waltz, in pink dusks & soft cyan dawns,

Where spume kisses grey rocks & the old whale hugely yawns,

It´s wherever you hear the howling wolf, calling to his moon,

And whether it be cold December or the soft summer June,

That´s where I shall be.

It´s where the air is thin & beasts can play & safely breathe,

Where ocean, desert, deep green forest, sigh & softly heave,

And all in life is united, in the split second of my dying breath,

Ending in the culmination, of what on this earth, we call death.

That´s where I shall…

Tied Where it Lies by Justin R. Hart

Creative Talents Unleashed

Cultures that constrain

are like railroad tracks,

keeping us separate

with steel rigidity;

tied where it lies in its tracks.

We must train our pupils

to look beyond being railroaded

by the one track tunnel vision

to see that parallel rails

will meet insight

of our Horizon,

while wisdom

paves the road ahead,

offering faith’s fortune

for our Freedom’s Future…

Justin Hart About the Author

As a child, poetry gave Justin Hart his voice. Since then, he developed his style, enveloping traditional symbolism, using nature to relate possibilities deeper than the literal level, offering more than imaginative stories to relay desire, belief, and purpose.

Some of Justin’s early inspirations came from the naturally simplistic, yet symbolic writings of Robert Frost, along with the depth of Khalil Gibran and…
