Graduating Thoughts


Stranded in a lifetime of trials, noticing life passing
on it's way towards death's horizons.

Watching it's sunset sinking slowly, painstakingly, into
depths unknown to mankind.

Reveling in thoughts of graduating intensity, left with
no avenues of defense, solitarily stranded in an abyss
of no return.

Alive, yet non-existent on earth.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
