Chasing The Wind - Poem by Vanessa Kingsley

He said it was pointless
Pointless
Pointless

But I’ll keep chasing
If there’s hope
That I may catch it
Become one with it
Fading away
Watching you chase me
Unable to touch me

I play a pointless game
Dance a never ending dance
Step by step
Move by move
I try
Try
Try

I keep trying to no avail
Vain attempts at catching the wind
Vain attempts at following
A path that’s long disappeared

He said it was pointless
Pointless
Pointless

But if you try
Try
Try
It will all pay off

It has to pay off
It has to be worth something
It can’t
Just
Be
Pointless

If I do everything in the same style
If I write clearly
Easily
Simply

They’ll all understand
Notice me
See me
And I will catch the wind
My path will come back

You won’t have to chase me
I won’t fade

But I know how this will end
This ‘princess’ will not be saved
This ‘princess’’ will be gone
Forgotten

Because she didn’t listen
To the pointless
Pointless
Pointless
Warnings
