Asking them is no use even if they know why...

the world as I knew it has changed
the sky has fallen, I am not whole,
ocean waves lick my wounded soul
I kiss the sky and and wonder why?

I am deemed most worthy but of what?
the lanscape is barren, and I feel forigen
There is no sun brighter no moon has glowen
any where near where you were born.

the sand hugs my feet, the air wraps me
a symphony of sympathy I feel so patheticly
Lost of hope and love and furtive glances
I lose the string tied gently to my soul

tugged and let loose I watch our hope
float as it ascends to the heavens,
far beyond moon, sun stars and sky
this is the day of lament;
the leaving of your burning question -why?

only the wind, sand, sea and sky know
and they are not given voices of reason and do not say...

I really, really, really

I really, really, really adore this poem! It just does something to my soul... the ultimate question... who knows why? I just hope someone or something does know otherwise no one is in control! Love the words used here you've created a sense of loss and hope at the same time... Great work! Kind regards The Mav


If its possible, no matter what it always starts with a dream!
