[the Writing of Kuypers][JanetKuypers.com][Bio][Poems][Prose]


i think of statues of greek gods
they were what people could aspire to be
they were something to strive for

and i’ve had no inspiration
other than my own mind
and i’ve created my own images
to keep me going

and i’ve succeeded
i’ve done it all
i’ve got the fame, the fortune

and now i look around
and all i see is destruction
i see the ruins of a fallen age

and i just want to see that statue
it’s so vivid in my mind
and i know it has to be out there somewhere

but i’ve been working so hard so long
that i forgot about the light at the end of the tunnel
and now i don’t know where to look
