Treasure Island

Lynne FincherSpringarden


It takes a thousand years to wake
But wake we must for heavens sake

To swim against the tide
Of mortal human thought

In Thee oh God we shall abide
And find the Truth we've sought

To live above the constant woes
Of worldly matters here

And to our waiting hearts revealed
There's nothing left to fear

Immanuel or God With Us
Our God was always near

Just beyond this temporal dream
Rejoicing we shall find

Immanuel or God With Us
The Hope for human kind

    The beauty of poetry is that it speaks to each person in way that is just right for them. Very much like the Scriptures. I was not familiar with the writings of Kant when writing this poem and thank you for your comments. I have learned something new and plan to follow up on the works of Kant. However this poem was actually inspired by two verses in the Bible. In Isaiah - where the Messiah was predicted. Immanuel translated literally means God with us. And the poem was meant to say that God is always with us. No matter what spiritual path we follow. No matter what culture or religion or atheist, God is always with us. (Report) Reply

    Immanuel Kant was the founder of Idealism.He highlighted objective knowledge comes from the cooperation of perception and conception.But God's idea is not like that.Anyway, I love this poem.Well done.My vote is absolutely 10.Congrats. (Report) Reply

    Immanuel Kant never reached any concrete decisions and empiricists like Locke believed in tabula rasa theory that people`s beliefs are subject to the senses and happenings around individual perpective variations.God is invincible.Humans are subject to fallacies.Immanuel tried only to hold that.But he is regarded in the poem.Great write as such.

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
