"Reflection" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 1/7/2005

I've Just Read A Poem ...
About ... " Child ABUSE " ... !!!

It's Touched Me So Deeply ... !!!
I'm Now Feeling ... BLUE ... !!!!

It's Filled Me With SADNESS ...
And FILLED ME With MADNESS ... !!!!!

How Could Any Person ... ?
Resort To Such BADNESS ... !?!

It's Made Me Reflect ...
On Certain Subjects ...
Like Those Who Live Life ...
For ALL They Can Get ... !!!!!

While Those Who Have NOTHING ...
Are Living In ... " Debt " ...

Dummies Spend Money ...
To Have .... " Internet " ....

But Use It UNWISELY ...
Like ... Surfing For Sex ...

These Heads Are INSECTS ...
With NO Self Respect ... !!!

REFLECTION Is Something ...
Most People DON'T Do ...

Too Many Are SELFISH ... !!!
And Don't Have A Clue ... ?!?

About Those Who SUFFER ... !!!!!!
With Sickness ... NOT Flu ... !!!!!!!

Sickness That KILLS ... !!!
While Others Sniff Glue ...

I Listen To People ...
Who Talk of RESPECT ...

These Days I Reflect ...
On This Thing Called ...

..... " RESPECT " .....

RESPECT Must Be Earned ... !!!
Why Give It For FREE ... ?!?

RESPECT Is NOT Something ...
For .... EVERYBODY .... !!!

RESPECT Can't Be Given ...
To People ... BLINDLY ... !!!

RESPECT Goes Together ...
With ... " HUMILITY " ... !!!

That Verse NEEDS INSPECTION ...
And Some ... " Thought Collection " .....

I'll Give You A Moment ...
To Take For ... " REFLECTION " ........................................................................................

Kids Are Important For Society ... !!!!!
They Need To Stand STRONG ...
Like ... " MUHAMMAD ALI " .... !!!!!

How Many of You ... ?
Know of His Poetry ...

How Many of You ... ?
Could EVER Achieve ...
His Level of Conscious ...
Or ... Athletic Feats ... !?!

I've Heard Some Great Stories ...
MOST Would Not Believe ... !!!!

The Way He'd Treat People ...
On Everyday Streets ...

His Generous Nature ...
To Strangers He'd Meet ...

How Many of Us ... ?
Could Be So Complete ... ?!?

YES ... !!!!!!

He Had His FAULTS ...
As Do Many of We ... !!!!!!!!

WE As In YOU ...
and WE As In ME ...

That's Why I Try HARD ...
To Show ... Humility ...
When So MANY SUFFER ...
And Are NOT So Lucky ... !!!!!

I Do Have Nice Things ...
But DO NOT Believe ...
That Things I Now Own ...
Should DEFINE Who I Be ... !!!!

It's Hard To Stay ... " grounded " ... !!!
When ALWAYS Surrounded ....
By Those Who LOVE MONEY ... !!!
More Than Their Own Body ... ?!?!?

These People Are DUMB ... !!!
They Make Me Feel NUMB ...
Which Is How I Felt .......
When I Lost My Dear Mum ... !!!

She Died In My Arms ...
I Then Felt ... The Calm ...............................................................................................

Cos' That's When I Felt ...
Her Love Through My Arms ...

It Was The Last Time ...
For Her Physical Charm ...
To Touch Me Just Like ...
A Knife Through My Palm ... !!!!!

But One Thing I Know ...
Is ... We'll ALWAYS KNOW ... !!!
The LOVE That We Shared ...

FOREVER ... Will Flow ..........................................................................

" I LOVE YOU STILL Mum ... !!!!! "

You SHINE Like The Sun ...
In The Heart of THIS MAN ...

YES Virgil Your Son ... !!!
So ... This Is My Message ...

It's .......... MY Invention .........
DON'T Live Your Whole Life ...
For ... SELFISH Pretension ... !!!!!

Take Time And Be WISE ...
And OPEN Your Eyes ...

Then You WON'T Be SURPRISED ...
By Things You Might Find ...

In Your Own ...

.... " REFLECTION " ....
