Leading to the lasting sea
Is the river of life,
Eternal, never ending.

    This moves well, my friend. I think it is difficult to convey a belief system in verse without sounding corny. You manage to doit well and the River metaphor is a great one. (Report) Reply

    dear tyler,
    the first line i think is weak especially the part about ' lasting sea'. it is reather vague. some parts tend to become cliche. perhaps more concreteness of thought and spare some IQ for lines that shine like diamonds, crystal clear in the dark. this poem can still be improved. the concept is very good.

    Agreed.Descriptions like this one remind me of the struggle we foreigners have with the language even after decades.

    This is just beautiful. You are really good at endings, Tyler and this picture you present of life shows your beautiful soul.

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
