Marvin Brato Sr

Rookie - 5 Points (March 2,1960 / Davao City, Philippines)

Final Destiny

My soul craves
for silence, yet
it does not
come to me...

My mind seeks
for serenity, yet
it does not
occur to me …

My tired body yearns
for a rest, yet
it does not
happen to me …

In all its forms
I want to possess
Maybe in eventual death
Such will finally come to me

    A Beautiful poem. Yes, we all love to take rest even at least for some time. We long for peace. Very true said, in last lines, only death can give us the silence and rest we long for...Loved reading each lines. Thanks for sharing with us. (Report) Reply

    Total serenity, silence and rest come to us only with death! As long as man is alive, he is able to enjoy these states only partially! ! Very meaningful Marvin! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
