Forgotten Shadow… - Poem by Cosmic Dreamer

Am I just a forgotten shadow of life?
For sunrise seems to pay me no heed,
I arise to a new day unnoticed once again.
To set about my daily chores,
Life feels like a dream once imagined,
Am I writing this poem or is it writing me?
Do I really see the dolphins riding the surf?
Are the sparkling flames of life really mine?
Or do we beat to the same flicker of life?
Shall we float like stars of hope in a silver sky?
Shall we blend together and become as one?
For life asks questions we should all seek to answer
Shall I pass the ultimate test of my existence?
Shall I be all that I may be? ? ?


Spread the love… The peace will follow…

    To be alone is needed sometimes. But feel alone ah, hurts! And sometimes there is no one in the world can help us.
    That happens when we have loneliness in our heart. A brief shadow! I hope.
