Sadness


Sadness

I feel sad

I don't know the reason

I wish I know

The sadness is gripping me

I feel no joy

I feel no happiness

What the future holds?

I feel arrows o sorrow landing in my heart

I feel silent cry

I keep wondering why I am sad?

Have the dreams of life faded away?

Have the flowers in the garden withered away?

Is it the cries from the past haunting me?

Is it the open wounds that never healed?

I feel apprehension

Life is now uneventful and monotone

is it the queitness before the storm?

The howling sounds echoe in my mind

the sense of life and death resonates

Feeling of loneliness add to sadness

Memories of loved ones revist me

wheels of time have turned rapidly

new pages of life will soon be open

wondering what they will be?

Will they be happy?

Will they be sad?

It is great mystry

the fear in my heart toys with me

The mystereous sadness remains

I want to drink from cup of joy

I want to smell the fragrance of the flowers

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
