Rainbows Of Tommorow


Poem Commentary

Under different circumstances . . .

Rainbows Of Tommorow

Under different circumstances ...
I might have been persuaded,
To wander in your garden
beyond the picket fence.
To wallow in my yesterdays ...
Rivers of tears and sorrow,
Gathering the memories
To fill my emptiness.

Somehow it all seems in vain ...
Like forever chasing rainbows,
When in reality all that remains
is now lost within the shadows.
Visions of landscapes, of skies and seas ...
And dreams of brighter days,
Fade with the memories of you n' me
Like beach sand washed away.

Under different circumstances ...
I might have dreamed of you,
Back when love was youthful
Powerful, strong and true.
Back when I was younger ...
In a picture perfect frame of mind,
Long forgotten the worries of today
In a carefree place in time.

Somehow it all seems to change ...
From better then to worse,
Like an unknown poet searching for
the perfect rhyming verse.
Visions of a future filled ...
with peace and harmony,
In my endless quest for love
Just what will become of me?

Under different circumstances ...
I might have had the time,
To find a moment in my life
To gain some peace of mind.
Maybe then I would have chosen ...
A different path to follow,
A path that would have led me to
The Rainbows Of Tomorrow!

we all learn from mistakes - just follow your heart



Thanks Franz ... Sometimes it just takes some of us longer to learn though lol! :) And I am not going to follow my heart again without some serious contemplation .. I recently followed my heart and it came back to bite me in the ass. It aint happening again that's for damn sure .. If you want, check out my poems Alone in the Dark and Fairy Tale Ending .. Both will explain a lot. Thanks again Franz for all the reads and comments. I especially appreciate it when someone delves deep into my archives. Thanks again Pal! :) Ken

I think I found a good one here, in the beginning. There is only now so the rainbow has to be sought and found to enjoy it. What is at its end? You.



Thanks Olan for your insightful comment. I suppose your right .. It could be me .. I wrote this years ago when I was reflecting on my life at the time. Seems now .. the pot of gold I was in search for has finally been found in my love Nicole. Thanks again Pal! :) Ken



Your a pot of gold, she is a pot of gold and I am a pot of gold. When going into a relationship; both parties need good self-esteem, then; you both can share in the riches. Congrats on finding the other end of your rainbow.

You are never alone for love lives every where dont give up on love there is a soemone for you and it will happen loved the poem truly a 10 Marie



Thanks Marie for your sentiments .. I wrote this many years ago reflecting on my life at that time .. I haven't ever really given up on love ...although it might have been easier. :) It's been a long road since I wrote this and have found love and lost love a few times since. But, such is life .. and I've since learned that life is what we make of it. Good or Bad. And love... well that's another story all together. lol! :) Thanks again, Ken

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
