Here is the second draft of a poem I am going to call reputations...if
you can think of another name please feel free to volunteer a new

I am also unsure if I have finished this one or not...if something
does not sound right or you have a suggestion to alter and improve it
feel free to let me know :) THANKS!


i wake to a white cleanliness on the world.
fresh appearances cloth the reality beneath,
what appears changed is nothing but a blanket.
turning inward there is a revelation of self.
a powdery snow of inner changes on outer realities.
bleaching of emotions...
a purifying of one's thoughts...
the child of our yester-years let out to play.

like snow, the visible melts.
people gradually forget the changes, but purposely erase the thoughts.
light dusting and visible altering transparent,
impressions stay intact to untrained eyes.
however, just because melted away it doesn't mean gone.
just as snow turns to water,
That water drains into our physical consciousness,
our being and virtuous ego.

ignorant minds see outward what was there,
they do not know the changes and differences.
minds and actions altered,
manipulated into improvements.
the landscape and facets of your being made new.
outsiders stay in their warm environments away from the cold,
not wanting the climate change,
they watch from windows of judgment.

once molded and crafted, permanently changing.
no way to alter the true mind and deeds.
what good to let changes snow on your personality?
what worth to make clean our mental world?
despite those uncaring,
against uninformed opinions...
we each seasonally clean our make-up and character.
we attempt to form and shape a new REPUTATION
