    the depth of...

    the depth of a soul is measured by time
    in a world of darkness and shimmering light
    how far must i delve
    when i search in myself
    for what determines how hard i should fight


    the depth of the mind is measured through sight
    optical memories that can never die
    how long 'til i see
    whats meant to be seen
    through the eye that dwells in my mind


    the depth of the heart is measured by might
    of conflict and struggle and weight of the plight
    how hard it can be
    for my heart to just beat
    as i search for my place in this life


    the depth of this life is measured in light
    the darkness of shadows and ticking of time
    how long 'til i know
    what the light has to show
    and i can finally have peace in my life

    Dano, The placement of your sentiments and the dedication to your search, leave me in awe and wonder. Such philosophy spoken in poetics. Love it. ginga

    the search often has left me in wonder as well... thanks for your comment and more importantly your freindship

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
