What Will We See

What Will We See

What power is it that can captivate a soul,
Make you powerful and powerless at the same time,
What cliff do you look over to see  sheer  loneliness,
How deep is the chasm when you fall,
What lies at the bottom waiting for you,
When do dreams end, Inspirations fade away,
Our minds die without imagination as the lights slowly go out,
Who lowers the final curtain, Who sweeps up the mess,
Why can't we get it right, Time after time again,
Will we, can we, with out drowning,
Can we face tomorrow today,
What will we see...........................

I've learning to live one day at a time, the past if I could redo my past I would make a lot of changes. I'm not guaranteed I'll be here tomorrow so today is all I have. I believe you when you say our minds die without imagination. I have a vivid imagination, used to get in trouble in school with it. LOL So Phoenix 9, I enjoyed reading this poem. Gives food for thought, and keep writing. Your friend, Janie aka WritingsByJanie

AWWWW What will tomorrow bring, do we really want to know before it gets here? Good Write my friend. Koolmom

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
