The Wind (poem)

Updated on May 18, 2012

As I moved ahead

Knocked back by this wind

Though my doubts were shed

Brought back in this wind

-

My future lies ahead of me

And yet this tide won’t let me be

This wind that will not let me free

Just what controls my destiny

-

Mindful of words said

There within the wind

Promises it said

Hopes it did rescind

-

A shattered possibility

The tatters that were calling me

The matters I had wished to flee

Of someone else’s memory

-

So I dove ahead

With my friend the wind

Mindless tears were bled

To myself I’d sinned

-

Who was this one that once was me

Whose eyes forgotten how to see

Who views the world so timidly

Who used the wind to set him free

-

Wind now fills my sail

Future I assail

As I meet my tale

Captain should I fail

      MHatter, David Bowie always has a unique take on musical themes. He's an appropriate introduction to your poem. In particular, I like the conflicting forces of future, present, tide, will and wind.

      Respectfully, and with a big Welcome to HubPages, Derdriu

      Hi Mhatter

      "Wind now fills my sail

      Future I assail

      As I meet my tale

      Very nice. Sometimes in life we get stuck until we realize we have to live our life and move on.
