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 …

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

    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 Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
