By John Heimburg

You know him….

but not really.  The

one who never knew

Unconditional Love. For

whom the siren song      of

Transactionality

calls…………

a never-ending   Quest         for

Acceptance

Approval

Adoration.

Fame

Has heightened the

Chimera

of

Success,  but the

Empty, Guarded

Soul

still yearns.

May One Day     someone

without Desire of Gain

Reach him….        See him….

Hold him….     Love him.

And

May he, with time,      Grow

Solid,

Healthy,

Secure.
