Imitation of Life

If only to crystalize it,
Shattering that mustard seed
with so many promises
That leave only a bitter taste.

Dissolved in a sea of hostility
The buoyancy of being invisible
While searching for meaning
In the irrelevance of one who relinquished
This imitation of life.

    Beautiful poem!

    OMG, I have watched “Imitation of Life” a zillion times. I always bawl my eyes out in the end when Sara Jane shows up at her mother’s funeral. Quite a movie that was for its time.
