well its been so long since ive written a poem. Mainly because i have lost sight of my muse or my inspiration to write i spent a good chunk of the summer working on a drawing that i just recently finished i thought id be glad to acheive that. well even though it was completed i didnt feel like i had done anything special… thanks to lightcontrast over at http://lightcontrast.wordpress.com/ for reminding me that inspiration can come from anything and that i can’t force it out. which is probably why i havnt been able to be creative for so long. I’ve been trying to force it out instead of letting it work through me.
this poem is about feeling.
I see the stars each night –
I know I will be great;
I feel people’s Pain and Passion.
When I’m around people –
My mind is blurred as the surface of the ocean;
I talk, but I’m gone With the winds with no direction.
There isn’t love or trust
I can willingly give back –
But I seem very unhappy.
Life could be crude –
Life could be adventurous;
Life could mean “living”,
But why can’t I …?
I am shelter when others feel pain –
I am comforting when approached;
I am loved by some,
Hated by others.
Why can’t I feel other people’s joy?
Some might call me selfish –
Some might call me stupid;
But if only they could feel my pain,
But if only they understood.
I never wished to be sad –
No one would.
But that is what I’m going through –
I know things will get better;
I will watch the sunrise
With someone I might fall in love.
But till then,
I remain as I am…
Awww…I’m glad that you’ve realized that inspiration is what you make of it. You’re welcome.
well ive been trying so hard to control every point and event in my life i forgot how life works.
Yeah, sometimes it’s better to just go with the flow. Go where the doors open. Avoid complacency and keep looking for opportunity. So when it comes knocking, you don’t miss it.
Well said, Matt. You gotta keep moving forward and make sure to enjoy the ride.
