Stained Glass Window

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Tuesday, March 30, 2010 Under: Poetry
Who am I?
I am a collection,
a masterpiece of careful
creations and contributions.
There are so many pieces
of experiences, places, people,
I feel like a stained glass window
with many parts making up the whole.
They are colorful and
many sizes - purples, blues,
greens, and greens,
they make up a picture.
The picture of me. 
So when you see me,
you see my parts as a whole.
But when you step back
and look, you'll see that
I am many things that
make up the my window.
So who are you?
Are you the same?
Are you also a stained glass window?
Full of color and parts that make
up the whole?
We all are.
We all are many things
that make up our own windows.
All unique and beautiful,
all are being held together
and can be fragile.  
So why not treat each other gently
and allow the beauty
and the light to shine through?
The only way the colors
can be seen in their best light
is for the sun to shine on them.
You can be someone's sun
or darkness - why
not help others shine
and bring out the best
colors in them?
