The Test

Updated on November 24, 2012


We are Caught....between
the earth and stars
life, death, world full of wars
man looks up above..searches for love


sparkling bright..
beautiful light
no matter where you are
near or far

listen to the ground,
feel it pound
touch the earth.. feel it's girth


water surrounds,
waves all around..


on land we lay..
on land we play

to the stars we fly
we wonder why..
when... how,
where are we now ?

a moment in space
is the human race


when we sleep...
in hearts, hope we keep


to find peace and rest
our souls.. a test

      Anna, thank you for the coments.

      After looking at your slam poetry link i see that if you get over your shyness you will really open up with your poetry.

      keep writing your words and always stay true to your inner voice.

      Beautiful and artistic. I know that heaven and earth collide and the stars we look up towards the Heavens wishing for peace on earth. Mankind will always test, test and test again until mother nature says enough. My friend the time is growing nigh when the ultimate test will come to challenge us all and all wars will cease. Peace and blessings I send to you this night, wonderful work you share here my friend. Shared and voted up.

      You have described much in few words. A bit overcoming at times. Very good.

      This is a lovely piece of work, your poetry is getting better and better as this is a real gem. It says it as it is, this little place we call home. Trapped between the stars and the living earth shows us how insignificant we all are in the scheme of things and this is extremely well expressed bu these provocative words. Well done my friend.........

      Voted up and awesome.............................................. Chris
