Unknown Circumstances


Standing at the edges of humanity, looking about, seeing
emptiness abounding, brought on by unknown circumstances.

Afraid to reach out or touch upon the subject of so much
pain, keeping it hidden inside for all time.

Knowing no solutions are to be found because they can only
be thought of through caring and love.

Noticing the world passing by, patterns of daily living
come and go, like shadows during daylight hours.

Forgetting the compulsion not to stray from certain paths,
leads to an understanding of other knowledge come to pass.

Combining all works of thoughtful encounters within the
mind, life changes it's tactics slowly.

Remaking history with history itself, sending truth back
and forth to find it's place.

Life revisited, stands on the edge of time, awaiting the
comforts, it knows will never come.

At the very edge of humanity, emptiness still fills life
through unknown circumstances.

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
