Adam Lambert Poetry – The Challenge
For Eric, Happy Birthday!! Love, J & X
“…you have the spirit and intelligence to take your gifts and change the world – just by not being afraid to be you.” ~ Juneau
Walk your chosen road
With a warrior’s fierce determination
With weapons incorruptible:
– Seer’s vision, inward looking
Understanding the way ahead,
– Heart full of feeling –
– And the absolute conviction
That you deserve to stand
With anyone, anywhere,
King, saint or poet.
Present a challenge,
For all to emulate you
In their own inimitable way.
– by Annehedonia
A note from the poet: The picture from the For Your Entertainment album art photo shoot had stuck with me all this time – the black-polished nail is positioned as to suggest a third eye, or the caste mark of a Brahmin. The middle finger, in American Sign Language, is called “the feeling finger”, and well, we know it’s used with feeling in at least one familiar context! You know I can’t resist looking for deeper channels to plumb!
