Hall of Milestones

I stood beside a virtual stage
Leading from an everlasting hall
My soul was trapped within a cage
A silent whisper gave my name a call

I strolled up the steps of fear
Upon a pedestal of regret
As I knew the end was approaching near
My conscience broke into a sweat

Glowing orbs
To what seemed like milestones
Releasing the strength which I absorbed
Sent energy through each bone

A mirror of life was placed before my eyes
As I observed its magnificent glow
Its radiance caught me by surprise
Revealing answers I did not know

Hope! Alas i finally see
Milestones define Man’s success
He acts upon no decree
And holds tightly what he possesses

An onix of milestones stretched across the hall
Each telling a story of fate
Once again, that silent call
A voice I can familiarly relate

Many of which defined my past
Others hold in Future’s mystery
Who knows how long each would last
But I see what I see in me

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
