Sitting alone in thoughts of a past no longer perfect

    We heard the sad tune played in the poem. This is time which preaches us and we can't tame. Very nice.

    there are always lot of ways to choose.we are treading on a rim.the positive is one of its side and negative is the other.
    some time we have to decide which way is the best.we may choose the wrong way but in future as we look back down to what we decided we understand that our lives had to be gone just as like as the way we chose.
    great one~nb

    This one, I enjoyed so much! The over running tone of melancholy and pathos tugs at the soul so deep!
    Catch us before our great fall
    Parachute us... or we won't be even able to crawl
    Such deep and profound expression of man's helplessnes! Indeed a wonderful poem! !

    parachute....i want to talk about it(i mean parachute) . well, sometimes we see and feel that we are close to fall from a high steeple or a cliff. not the same cliffs in nature, the cliffs in our lives those are even more dangerous than the one in the nature, and they are the hard problems and things like that. we start to fall but something helps us, something takes our hands as a parachutes. we should know whats that
    well done

    interesting piece, deep and well thought out, we all at one stage will fall, if lesson are learn before gravity meets out fate to the flow we don't break rather para-glide. i found this to be a powerful and well described piece. excellent work

    Falling is the only way we will learn and grow in this up and down world. Thanks for protecting us all.
