Poem . "Too Late"

“Too late”

If am not here

Fighting

For my family.

or for wealth,

riches or fame!

Why then must I

Act so foolishly

Living my life

Like am just

playing some

useless game!

This situation

Is real

As death

sometimes

would reveal.

While some are

Burying their nuts

For later

Others are just

Waiting to steal

Only because

It comes easy

That way

Contented to give,

A spirited try

Never a sensible

Moment

Before having

To ask themselves

Why?


Ever took a ride

On an sluggish old

Chew, chew train.

Ever sat outside

With no umbrella

When suddenly

It started to rain

Why would my

Intentions be

To take someone

To that place

Knowing

They will surely

Fall

In some dismal

Settings

Knowing

It’s impossible

For others

To hear his calls?


Put your prints

On the dotted line

Don’t wait until

You are asked

To sign

Because

It’s the same

Procedure.

Each and every

Time.

Life is only the

Mystery

That you made

Yours to be.

Same days, same

Nights same wars

Just another fight.

Same rumors

Of wars

The light fades

Same darkness

That’s forever

Chasing the light.

To remain unsolved

Is to create more

Interest

Situation resolved

Those who survives

Are usually the

Fittest.


It’s not for the swift

But who can endure

Who feels it knows it

Only one way

To be sure!

Being in a forest

Surrounded by trees

Limbs and branches

Intact

But void of leaves.

In the dead of winter

So much snow on

The ground

No trees, no fire

Just

Freezing all

Around.

That’s his home

That’s where he lives.

The bears, the seals

Why they don’t have

Such a need

Humans will die

In just an instant

While these smile

And play

The stories we read.

Think!

Some look before

They leap,

Remembering

Still waters

Sometimes

Runs deep.

Some simply plunges

Head first,

Instant death

Of

Thoughtlessness

Rather than of

Thirst

That same curiosity

We all say

Killed the cat,

Possessed you so

Badly,

Developed a sudden

Premature

Urgency

Hell, that’s simply

That

Think!

“Too late”

Thanks "AE" If I had one wager to make I would bet on you in these times and say you will be fine.

Better late than not at all.

Thanks for all .

A lot to think about here Sky. I think the main theme is survival of the most fit, only don't wait too late to obtain it. Am i close?... Peace.

Thanks very much Cadisa .

But wait! Not so fast. It was not till after the standards set by folks like yourself and "AE" that I saw this invisible mark that I set off to use as a light.

For this I thank you both, will never forget.

With great ease I say the best is truly yet to come from me. Only time.

Sincere thanks to you for such kind, and encouraging words.

Thanks for reading Eddy and that's for such a great compliment, it is certainly encouraging .

One can only take whats' given to them, while having a keen eye on the source from which it's coming, and from one as dedicated as yourself , who puts so much visible love and meaning into that which he does .

I greatly appreciate this, it's overly encouraging Eddy.

Blessings to you and yours

Sincere thanks.
