Poem Commentary

Simple poem; tried to flow it; paint a picture with words; maybe some wisdom sprinkled in.


Life will lead us,
In those moments,
We feel out of control,

Fate dances with us,
Smiling the whole time,
Knowing we actually lead,

Not Fate itself,
She can only take us so far,
The rest is up to us,

Will we be slaves?
Doubt rule our lives?
Fear wrap its tendrils tightly around us?

Held captive,
In our own minds,
Chained by our sorrows,

With doubts the locks,
Slavemaster called fear,
Or will we be free?

The answer is simple,
Do or Do not,
As there is no try,

Free yourselves,
Life loves us truly,
She has given us choice,

Wake up!
Those chains are nothing but illusions;
Of our own making,

Freedom is a step away,
Can you take it,
Are you willing to be free?

Those rare moments come before us,
We can let them walk by,
Or grab them fully,

Fate she is just a mistress,
Neither cruel, or kind,
She just is,

Which you see,
Is up to you,
So grab those moments,

Let those words you truly feel,
Flow freely,
Actions following those words,

Love like you never have before,
Kiss with unbridled passion,
Simply live for the first time in your life.

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
