Blaze of Today: A Poem

Blaze
Blaze | Source

Another of my old poems from my teenage years. This one was a little more experimental, sort of a stream of consciousness piece. I was sorting through a lot of things in those days and part of my unwinding process was relaxing me mind and letting myself wander through words and meanings. At the time it had quite a soothing effect. Let me know what you think.


BLAZE OF TODAY


Tommorrow the blaze of today

Screaming child the world has paid

Trapped beneath the water surface

You dragged me here, here on purpose


Your here

Your there

Your everywhere

To me

To be

With all your cares


Freedom speed does not exist

Feel the pain of what you've missed

Wish for sleep and sleep to dream

The secret life of microbes teem


Your here

Your there

Your everywhere

To me

To be

With all your cares


Turn around and meet your fate

Approach it now destinies gate

Dissedent across the way

What am I supposed to say?


Your here

Your there

Your everywhere

To me

To be

With all your cares

Great stuff, reading old things we wrote. This seems to have a doubtful feeling as to where you are going but we all have that in our teens.Like you I never threw out any of my writing and now I'm glad I didn't I can see how much better I have become.

raciniwa - I was certainly on a trip of the inner self and mind during this writing. Rejuvenates the imagination I suppose. Thanks for commenting!

Not sure what you were going through on that particular day but it seems to question your existence in life. This is very normal for teens and leads to finding your purpose. You were a writer even then!
