Embrace - An Original Poem By S

Updated on July 26, 2012

Who are we?

And what have we become?

So many answers to these questions

Lost along the way since we were young

The pressures of peers and deadlines in this conformist society

Only out to feed it's own power

They don't care for you and me

I live for stars

Clear and bright

The sunrise above the sea

The leaves that fall when Autumn is calling me

The Earth tells me that these pressures don't matter

Unless they're a neccesity

I want to still this endless chatter

So my mind can be free

So much love in the world

It beckons

It calls

Yet we turn away

Never understanding that

If we embrace that love

We embrace ourselves

We believe we are alone

But yet

This is an illusion

We are never alone.


"When the fight begins within himself, a man is worth something." - Robert Browning
