TEARS ON MY MIND [A POEM]

TEARS ON MY MIND [A POEM]

Life is nothing but something. It is a collection of experiences. With trials and lessons meant to teach. Like a promise, it comes and goes



we are destined to come and go. We ve dwelt on that since the start of time. Watching as generations come and go. Blessed with some universal shortcome - to err.

We re not perfect but mere imitators. Following the wind of life. Partaking in its passion. Hopeful in all we do.



Are we here to come and go? Where exactly do we go? Is it a safe haven? What do we do there?

Our lives is all about unanswered questions. Many answered and unanswered. For sure, we come and go. But where exactly do we go? Why do we go there? These are tears in my mind!

do you believe that life can be meaningful or is it a waste of time?

  • YEAH, LIFE IS WORTH LIVING
  • JUST TRYING
  • LIFE IS MEANINGLESS
  • LIFE SUCKS

This is more what I refer to as Prose than Poetry, my friend! If one reads it very carefully, they will soon discover that it abounds in Philosophical Postulations!

I have, in several of my hubs, addressed a few that all of us must face. The way to approach them honestly comes to you with ones own experiences.

For me each of them has had its answers revealed in time and through deep meditative personal contemplation! I did enjoy your intensity as you ask these questions of us your readers!

By engaging your audience in this manner you allow us to interact with you and share in this learning experience, Ubanichijioke! I voted this up and have pushed the buttons that I felt were appropriate to the topic.

Regards Mike (Aka Professor M!)

I think it is how you perceive,In olden days it is said nothing can be achieved with big hard work and also a big dream.If you dream to be a pilot or astronaut at least you will land up in some forces work. but definitely not a mason.Like that I feel if you wanted your life to be enjoyable you can make it enjoyable .All is in the state of our own mind.I may be wrong.Dear uban you have an amazing way of telling your point across and you seemed to be simple and straightforward guy.I like your works very much.I am glad to vote this interesting.

Life isn't altogether what we imagine i have a hub on that. Anyways we have to make the best of what life offer us and above all thank GOD , He knows every mountain we will climb, every storm that will pass us by. In times of trials and temptations we need to cling unto HIM ever more.

At times life give us some serious blows and we don't feel like going along but something pushes us forward and that's God's love and grace to us.

Thanks for sharing ;)

Life is made up of journeys, it's not about the destination but the trip it took to get there. The stories we can tell and the memories we can hold onto.

How often do we ask the question "Where do I go from here?" If life is a series of challenges and lessons, then only by reflecting on our past triumphs and mistakes, can we wisely choose the next path that we will ultimately embrace.

Beautiful poem and I enjoyed it greatly!. Up and awesome! Thanks for sharing this ubanichijioke!

I wanted to come back because these are words of wisdom and gratitude, plus appreciation for life. I wish I had half of your chemistry. I always say it and I mean it, you are a special person with such a talented gift. It is almost, it is hard to put in words. You give off this light. It surrounds you. Your good peoples. It is a quality of a dieing breed. That is what makes it special. People like you are few and far my friend.

I am blessed to have found this hub ubanichijioke. Clearly I was drawn to it. My belief is to be reminded how lucky we are to have choices, we must embrace them and stand behind them, painful or joyful. As always your work is inspiring and motivating to me, I so enjoy it.

Thank you
