Stare into the Shadows


Stare into the Shadows

I sit and stare into the shadows of the past, present, and the future.
I sit and stare my fears in the face.
I sit and stare at my dreams one on one.
I sit and stare my goals head on through my accomplishments.
I sit and stare at a blank wall when I think of the love I desire and need. So many days in the year that I just sit staring my life in the eyes as if I cannot move, through all of these days in the year.
What is to become of these shadows I sit and stare into?

Once the conviction of dedication is found in searching for who one is and where they have the power to go is derived the key to it all is persistently stepping forth to it! FreeBird 02

Introspection is never easy, but it is necessary if we are to evolve throughout our lives. That ideal is beautifully depicted here. This poem, whether you intended it or not, is an excellent representation of saturated id, blended within an emotional torrent of doubt, but doubt breeds indifference and fear. Never doubt yourself. If nothing else, you've created beautiful poetry.



Thank you for your kind words. Somedays it all I can do to not stare into the darkness. You felt my pain, indifference and fear. Im older now and dont let it control me so much these days, but thanks. I was afraid to put these out there, I see now maybe I was silly. Thanks again Lithium... ThatGurl

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
