All That I Am (poem)

Updated on June 11, 2015

Let me loosen on you a thought I made

A thought I made

A thought I made

-

It came upon me while watching something outside

Outside the window of things I’m normally used to

Normally used to

Normally used to

-

I stepped beyond this person which I was

Was this the call of moments now beginning

Beginning conclusion of purpose undone

Purpose undone

Purpose undone

-

Almost forgotten were the tears warming my eyes

Eyes which followed the seasons to shadows

Shadows of streets I once walked to this

This youthful delusion of all that I am

All that I am

All that I am

-

Almost forgotten was the hope and the trust

Trust of people who believed there was so much more

More than this endlessly brief ticking of time

Time painted in glories by tomorrow’s hands

Hands whose faith and caring has all come to this

Has all come to this

Has all come to this

-

Dreamer forgotten waking to face winter’s winds

Winds from my memories loosed from their walls

Walls which were woven by things now unknown

Unknown perhaps because I cannot hear the truth

Truth calling from harsh mirrors of illusion

Illusion which will guide me to this end

      That poem was interesting, interesting, interesting. I do not know what it was about it but it somehow intrigued me. It had my attention from beginning to end. I voted up, shared and pinned it.
