I'm here to decree


I’m here to decree
That I have dreamed a dream of mixed reality
I’ve climbed the highest mountain
I’ve seen things that I thought my eyes would never behold
I’ve searched for answers to my questions old and new
I stopped on my path and wandered off
I’ve tread through lands of enigmatic intent
I have soared where eagles fear to fly
Oh yes I’ve climbed this mountain of mine up so high
Now I fear that I’ll crash and burn
I’ve searched all my life for meaning of mankind
Yet I still feel blind
My heart beats on and what for?
For the day when we’re no more?
It seems that gone I’ve so far
But now I see that all of this searching has done me no good
Forget all your strife
And smile down at life

    a lovely poem
    seeking to understand life
    and the meaning of life
    which we all search for
    and the poem
    always gives solace for the heart
    even if the mind still wanders
    keep up the good work (Report) Reply

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
