Life

Real Life

August 31, 2008

another night of tossing and turning
unable to sleep in this journey
knowing fully landfall is imminent,
i brace myself for the moment!

running around in circles
i move around hypnotized
unable to sit down in place
unable to do anything meaningful;

waking up to the start of a new day,
i wonder how long to go
before the
day of the reckoning;

i think it’s still dawn
but i really don’t know,
time flew so fast,
i can’t remember a thing;

i sat down to take a good look at me,
but my eyes couldn’t see myself;
i started to think about tomorrow,
but my mind got stuck in present;

everyone keeps talking,
yet i don’t hear a thing;
i wonder what it’s like to live
i wonder what more should i do,
to live life, a real life;

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
alternate ending
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

everyone keeps talking,
yet i don’t hear a thing;
everyone keeps dreaming a lot,
yet i dream of only life, a real life that is;

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living. – Anais Nin

Love the moment. Flowers grow out of dark moments. Therefore, each moment is vital. It affects the whole. Life is a succession of such moments and to live each, is to succeed – Corita Kent

    Poetry is deeper than just writing, I can feel the authors pain, feeling lost in the world can break you but you have to go on and try to make things better. Love your writing.
