Poem Commentary

My mind still continued to flow amidst this rainstorm I gaze upon outside my window...Just a prose set upon the page.....

The Calamity of Conformity.......

Some say the end is near....
Some say we lack the gratitude...
I certainly hope we will...
I should have used my vacation from this...wanton...wanting
Freeing rain....absent the lack of quaint disdain.

Free...surrender...hope is coming....hope is falling away
The only way to thirst is to push it all away
Any circling time....any wandering way
Jaded to conformity's breathtaking array
Learn to swim as waves are falling....drowning all our ways.

Some say a comet will fall from the sky
Followed by earthquakes, tornadoes, and tidal waves
Some throw out other things....can I set still
As the coming storm we crave
Crazed amongst the simple.

This circus, sideshow, reprieved reign
Moniker of my mind within contained
The only way to taint it is to push this all away
Victim....eyes....shall not be enslaved
Anytime...any chains...broken all the same.

Some say the end is near...
Some say we'll see armageddon soon...
I certainly hope we will...
I should have used my vacation from this...
Bag of listless faces convinced thus...

I have a suggestion to keep yourselves occupied
Sink or swim...hope..befriend
For soon...within...self...amends
Bends beyond trends
To find what's in self again.....

Well stated and, indeed, time draws nigh for humans, but it will not come from on high; from earthquakes, meteors or others on you list; it will come from our own hand and a nuclear mist. Our President's nightmare as he goes to sleep each night. It is the one call he fears; he dreads that thousands and thousand lay dead and the begin of his worst fright.

[Bends beyond trends To find what's in self again.....] - yes sir. When uniqueness follows another uniqueness its no longer uniqueness is it? Vivid journey man. I like how you broke up some of the sentences. Gave it that lyrical quality. Making the poem itself.........unique. I find life beautiful in its uniqueness. And I get inspired by what uniqueness can create. Keep creatin man......

Wow Altair! This is great, This is always a powerful subject line - leaves one with much to ponder and reflect on. The end is near or so the bible and prophets state. If it is believed, then one must make peace with themselves. Awesome prose bud! :) Ken ......Oh btw .. I have 2 older posts (both song lyrics) that deal with this subject as well. if your interested. http://www.originalpoetry.com/fountains-of-flame and http://www.originalpoetry.com/desolation-of-the-damned

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
