Truth A Blind Philosophy


we are living our moments
a life full of torments
yet we sacrifice to smile

we mingle
singing twinkle twinkle the songs of the stars
ignoring the fact that we will die
its simple

we dance
as the winds blow
each time entering a tranquil of trance
our minds subconscious of the pains we go through

we love
even when the sky is rough
hearts being broken
its all rotten,
yet we still survive

we are strong
thats who we are....

    This is a wonderful write!
    we mingle
    singing twinkle twinkle the songs of the stars
    ignoring the fact that we will die
    its simple I love these lines especially as I myself battle with ideas of life and death and where they collide.
    Great philosophical ideas throughout. Nice! (Report) Reply

    Hmm....yes we are. And I still hold on to the hope that when our time comes to leave this crazy world, we will somehow be shown what it was all for and what it was all about! Interesting poem. Enjoyed! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
