"My Container" Poem (from "A Lover in the Land of Hell" Spiritual Poetry Book)



All you see is my container

You can’t fathom the real me

Trapped in a world of illusion

You only see what you’re told to see

Our society has succumbed to appearances

so you search for the prettiest face

In haste all you find is confusion

an empty consciousness human race


All you see is my container

That’s what they’ve taught you to see

I don’t blame you for your outlook

but it’s pretty bleak if you ask me

Idolizing skinny models

Immortalizing their physique

Encouraging starvation

When there’s enough starvation on the streets


All you see is my container

Why should my skin tone bother you?

Because it’s lighter or darker

than your particular hue?

If I wear a bit more makeup

you may call me a whore

If I cover up and wear glasses

I may seem like a bore


All you see is my container

as you compare it with tv

pinpointing my imperfections

deciding how I’m supposed to be

Influenced by the media

your opinions are not yours

Billboards dictate standards

so I must have many flaws


All you see is my container

Don’t you wish you could see more?

beneath the hidden surface

Would you like to take a tour?

I want you to know the real me

The one that lies within

this facade of skin and clothing

That’s where my truth begins


All you see is my container

Yet I’m truly one with you

A spirit in a flesh suit

in a world of judging fools

I see there’s more inside you

there’s much more for you to see

If you open your eyes you’ll find

how much more there is to me
