POEMS @ FLEETING THOUGHTS

These are the thoughts of an old man as the world sees me. I feel I am younger than they think. Reality has not yet caught up to me.

NO GOING BACK

These are the thoughts of an old man as the world sees me. I feel I am younger than they think. Reality has not yet caught up to me. NO GOING BACK  

I want to go back

To right my wrongs,

I want to go back

To enjoy the moments

The best moments

Of my life,

I want to go back

To appreciate the good

And try to obliterate

The bad,

I know this a dream Impossible,

But in dreams

My desires Are accomplished.

VALUE

When you can buy
Anything you desire
Those possessions
No longer have
Value.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS

Looking Back,

Have you ever

Wished

You were young

Again,

With what

You know

Now?

                                                    THE END

 

For our country,

I feel this

Is the beginning

Of the end.

And we

Are in part

Responsible.

 

 

I once used a line in a poem, ‘a sadness too deep to be real’.

It is becoming real.

 

There are still those full of poetry, stories and art. They struggle to survive and they always will. But greed has taken over this country.

 

The only comfort for me personally is that I will be dead when this great country’s dream is unrecognizable.

TRUTH AND LIES

 

The truth

Will be hidden

As we are

Distracted

By the lies.

DREAMS

 

I have the dreams

Of a young man,

Denying my age

In my fantasy.

REALITY

What’s done is done

I can’t go back

To right the wrongs

To heal the wounds.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS: CONFUSION

THE PAST AND PRESENT

 

I recall the little boy

Full of hope

And no one

To give him

Guidance.

Thoughts beyond

His young mind

Could not understand.

 

He became a man

And as in his youth

There are no answers.

POEMS & FLEETING THOUGHTS

THE SECRET MESSAGE

 

I know I promised to return to the art of writing, but thoughts and life interfere.

 

Life

We settle

For the superficial,

That is what we are taught,

What we are trained to accept,

But those

Who think beyond,

Pondering their existence,

Pondering questions

Their life does not fulfill

Risk madness,

Or perhaps,

True happiness.
