Poem . "Too Late"

Updated on December 6, 2011

“Too late”

If am not here


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


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


Before having

To ask themselves


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


They will surely


In some dismal



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


It’s the same


Each and every


Life is only the


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


Situation resolved

Those who survives

Are usually the


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


But void of leaves.

In the dead of winter

So much snow on

The ground

No trees, no fire


Freezing all


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.


Some look before

They leap,


Still waters


Runs deep.

Some simply plunges

Head first,

Instant death



Rather than of


That same curiosity

We all say

Killed the cat,

Possessed you so


Developed a sudden



Hell, that’s simply



“Too late”

      Thank brethren!

      Here is an open secret : I live to be a positive human, today I said I won't ask my mind to produce anything , but I will feed off the greatness of all the ones on HP

      You know Sky very few writers can shout out messages in their work.. you are the type that tread softly but carry a big stick.. I hear the loud message in your words.. fantastic Hub

      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.
