Treasure Island

Strange Life


I have some ideas,
But they're all tangled up,
Feelings premiere, but are not way on top,
I am confused, Doubt's Runner-Up,
The more I Live, the more I Doubt,
No one will tell me, 'the coast is clear'
Nor why we live, nor why we're here,
So I'll go on, day in and day out,
Still wondering and not finding out,
What this Strange Life is all about.

    Why I am here, I know that well!
    Smile like heaven, and love like hell!

    A wonderful poem. The mystic philosophy of our misty lives, often not apprehensible unless delved deep, leaves for us the perpetual enigma:
    'No one will tell me, 'the coast is clear'
    Nor why we live, nor why we're here, '
    And perhaps, so is the summary of your beautiful poem:
    'So I'll go on, day in and day out,
    Still wondering and not finding out,
    What this Strange Life is all about.'
    Very well written, Sandra! (Report) Reply

    This is truly a universal poem that everyone can relate to at different points in thought within our lives.

    I've said in past times the purpose of life is death, but what lies in between is evolution where humanity either chooses to evolve or not and then we die. We create purpose to have meaning when all the meaning we really need is to love one another and evolve as the race called humans. I really enjoy this poem thank you for sharing =)

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
