The word called things

Updated on October 23, 2012

Things change so fast

Am I still the man


That wrote the word called things

In natures wicked fickle ways

Change is all that future brings


So why hold on to feelings

That hurt and burn your soul

For nature, future and your mind

Chase unknown dreamlike goals


They'll change when you are sleeping

The sun won't look the same

We live in hell

They call it life

But it's just a cruel game


You'll never sit in that chair

Or stand within their shoes

Of lucky ones in your eyes

All illusions that abuse


The gentleness that you love

The thing that makes you....you

Life is unforgiving

Chasing rainbows

Whats the use

      So beautiful Jon! Don't stop there, Jon, continue with the challenges and keep chasing rainbows. Illusions are mere illusions, the truth is and lies within yourself. I for one would continue to chase sunsets for it brings new moments in all different directions. I love the poem!

      Beautifully written, but with no hope it seems. I will never stop chasing rainbows as eHealer commented above, as there is always hope in each new day, no matter how dark things appear at the moment.

      God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Hello Simba, beautiful poem and bittersweet. I will go on chasing rainbows, just because I can. I have little expectations from life, sometimes that is a strong suit. Write On!
