Who Knows (poem)

Updated on December 5, 2013

Who knows the colors of the morning’s sun

The blessings of a day about to glow

What blossoms are awakened mid its flow

What wonders are awaiting to be done


Who knows the splendor which a dream may show

When all that really matters has begun

And passions lost within a heart are won

Who knows the meaning few will come to know


They wake and sleep and stumble through their day

No shame it is so natural to do


The crowd can often blanket our dismay

And shuffle off the hope of something new


Who knows the path to ease us on our way

The knowledge sun and dreams are within you

      Very lovely Martin..We stumble through the day, not knowing, maybe that's the way it should be? Thought provoking indeed...

      Lovely poem, Martin. We need to know where we are going, rather than stumbling around aimlessly. God knows the path we should take to give purpose in our lives.

      It is said that we hold, within our grasp, everything it

      takes for happiness and fulfillment.

      It is a fearful thought.....because it makes ME responsible

      for my own happiness.

      Isn't is amazing how your poetry affects people differently.

      Good job, Martin!
