Bloom Where They Are Planted


Let bloom my desires,
where they are planted.
I know that each prayer,
can not be granted.
But, give me the serenity,
to stand the thing I can't change,
I cherish to gather, the courage-
to convert something strange!
Shower the wisdom upon me,
so that I can judge the difference....
what is better layer of life,
must be nourished carefully hence!

    Just beautiful... You just let bloom my desire to consume more of the beauty you produce, something strange you converted with the courage you gathered. (Report) Reply

    Like the pure white block of marble that the sculptor attacks
    Chipping away blow by blow until he creates a cold statue of the
    image in his mind he thinks he has conquered the stone.
    But in time he grows weary and dies but the statue remains
    A monument to his futility long after his name is forgotten. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
