The Rhythm Of Life, Take,Blood - Poem by alan brown

Our hearts beat in unison
the rhythms of our life
sometimes calm and slow at beat
but sometimes fast and full of fright

We dictate the way that our minds think
by the beating of our heart
Because if the heart stopped beating
our thoughts would never start

We walk the pace of our life
to the pulsing in our veins
as the blood rushes through arteries
to help us deal with all life's pains

The blood of life grows slower
as we meet our dictated age
Trying to remember
The youth that it once gave.

Now time has passed inevitably
as I lie here thinking in my mind
Of the blood rushes and happiness
that we will all leave behind.

So remember all the goodtimes
when your blood would evenly flow
and don't thing of the bad times
When your blood went around to slow

    Beautifully expressed- the flow of emotions in life vis-a-vis the flow of blood in our veins
    which is a part of our aging process. Thanks & Congrats, Alan.

    In the heat of youth often we can't judge what is wrong and what is right. It dawns upon us only when we become mature in our thoughts and actions. A sound advice to savour the good times that we enjoyed when old age takes us into its grip. Congrats.
    'The blood of life grows slower
    as we meet our dictated age
    Trying to remember
    The youth that it once gave.'...is nice. Excellent.

    So remember all the goodtimes
    when your blood would evenly flow
    and don't thing of the bad times
    When your blood went around to slow - -Time will surely flow, blood will eventually slow down, but remembering good times will keep us happy.

    A wonderful poem.Congrats for being selected as the Poem of the Day.

    excellent expression - like to quote last stanza

    So remember all the goodtimes
    when your blood would evenly flow
    and don't thing of the bad times
    When your blood went around to slow

    I agree with Poetic Dreamer that you should take another look at the syntax of some of the lines. The last line should read, 'When your blood went around too slow' However I like the content and the way the lines flow. (Report)Reply
