Dave Alan Walker

Bronze Star - 2,580 Points (Pudsey, Leeds)

A Seamless Life Line

A never ending story
of events
That fall into line
like soldiers on parade

From one event to the next
It's like it was a plan
just to get you to now

From the obscure
to the sublime
everything in life
falls into one
seamless life line

    Sometimes i wonder if you are a patriot, coz when you write, make all heart out...
    I agree many of them finished the life lines with a dot. end of a story end of a life line...but it never stop to have another dot like this................... how many dots will they have for their life? when love is not linked to our hearts and war/hate is connected to our souls it seems like a life line will contiguously to be done...what a sad one_Unwritten SOul (Report) Reply

    How did we get to 'now'. Sometimes it feels impossible that life has passed us by so effortlessly. Well written and illuminating. Thank you for your kind comment on one of my poems. (Report) Reply
