Significance

Within the breast of each

a human heart aspires to reach

goodness

greatness

and some measure of glory.

Hidden in the heart yearns

a soul that long ago learns

to accept

frailty

fragility

and some measure of folly.

Deep within and hidden in the soul

a consciousness stirs awake to the cold

realization of

insignificance

inconsequence

and some measure of insanity.

Down in humanity’s empty cavity

a spirit-being belies the vanity

of searching

seeking

for some measure of security

in the knowledge that

someone perhaps

might remember me.

I find poetry really helps me ask and deal with "the big questions" of life and its meaning. Very existential, I know. I guess it's how I'm wired. Poetry is a great way to sort it out and wrestle with those niggly issues in the back of my mind but in the center of my heart. I'm glad you enjoy them. Thanks!

Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.

Plato (BC 427-BC 347) Greek philosopher.
