Life's Undulations - Poem by Daniel Bates

The undulations of life find me sitting here,
Like hills in the peaks, rolling on until the end.
For now I'm alone, sad and full of un-cheer,
But, a light, my thoughts offer to lend
For I know better times are always near.

A friend I find in poems and ponder
Deep dark thoughts neatly placed to one side,
I know, as it is through willing that is wonder
And this life, a roller coaster of a ride
That dips and dives and casts mists asunder

So enjoy the moments of deep torment
Because it's in experience that greatness is built
And know, deep down, through willings lament
That strength and power, filled to the hilt
Will tide me for life's next great event.

Topic(s) of this poem: alone, contemplation, depression, life, loneliness, optimism, sad, success

    Daniel, a beautiful work I could easily immerse myself in right from the start. Words and phases I could immediately wear on my heart, my soul bathing in its torment. Thank you, Daniel, for a grand effort! (Report) Reply
