Public eye

The public expectations way heavy on his shoulders.

A rope pulling him to the ground attached to giant boulders.

A public figure attached from his true self.

Like a jacket worn during the day, then placed on a shelf.

Free information from this open book.

Any time, day or night you can take a look.

Roots run deep from the family tree.

One branch left swinging in the breeze.

Dream chaser or family mainstay?

Corner strainer post, just taking the strain.

The day ends and he heads for home.

The one place he is himself, were there is peace and room to roam.

  1. I?m impressed, I have to say. Actually hardly ever do I encounter a blog that?s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you could have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the difficulty is something that not enough individuals are talking intelligently about. I’m very completely happy that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for one thing referring to this.
