Foreshadowing

Updated on June 2, 2017
Foreshadowing indicates evil , crippled future.
Foreshadowing indicates evil , crippled future.

Unbiased god

has kept aside,

the ‘drastic fate’

I’m bound to abide.


I don’t know what

the future does hold.

Maybe crippling

or bright and bold.


How this uncertainty

shears my soul,

playing the devil’s

evil role.


All I can do

is search about,

or helplessly drown

in endless doubt.


The black clouds,

the stormy rain,

all foreshadow my life

to be filled with pain.


The scar in my heart

bloody and deep,

plundering my precious

whole night’s sleep.



My heart’s desire is now

full of strife,

hammering incessantly

smashing my life.


With my powers

and fore-eyes I see.

Sorrow will arrive

or life will be in glee.


I feel like running

deep in the wild.

Behaving frantically,

whining like a child.


I feel as if

in tears I sink .

My grave , sad days

that’s all I can think.


Foreshadowing hints

my painful start,

like a dark shadow ,

it eclipses my life.


My foresight and instinct ,

constantly indicate,

my upcoming, pitiable

worn out state.


The wolf’s shrill call

or dark , gloomy night,

the cat’s unbroken cry

all foreshadow my plight.


Wherever I stay

or out I go.

My stabbing thoughts

just bring me low.


For my hard thoughts

and foreshadowing,

in deplorable suspicion

whole day I swing.

      A very spooky place to be in, real or imaginative...dark, gloomy, spooky, tingling with fear. Beautifully written!

      I understand that train of thinking, we all have/will in this or other incarnations especially since that is always around us in some form.

      I have now escaped it by recognizing reincarnation as the ultimate truth concerning life on earth. What I did was what the Buddha did, left the comforts of civilization and entered the self-reproducing environment questioning it to explain to me where there are so many opposing factors. What it said to me was become objective, participate in this environment as a part of it for discovering various outcomes, a left, right and middle it proved to exist, then reason with the various outcomes and see if you can explain it to others. By following those instructions I was revealed life is endless, we are the life-force and the various bodies we incarnate as are to teach us the full extent of what the physical manifestations are about.

      May you find such peace.

      Very deep thoughts, which are equally a drama of dark emotion. Good job.

      Sad poem. Great poem. Excellent.

      Scars are milestones sacred,

      Ask those who strayed wild.

      You pinned it,

      By penning it.

      Strong images here. Suspicion and fear throughout.

      The imagery provokes feelings of mystery, and anticipated fear. The imagery feels ominous. Sometimes staying in the present and taking one day at a time, can be both calming and building an ongoing momentum.
