Gazing Upon Dark Clouds

Gazing Upon Dark Clouds Empty Gazing Upon Dark Clouds

Post  mikeschultz on Wed Feb 15 2012, 08:11

Soulful yearnings, the spirit moves me
to describe things I have done and known –
presumptions of innocence, misplaced trust,
naiveté betrayed – blossoms of despair
herald the shedding of the seeds of discord,
new growth on an old wound that still hurts,
growing pains, we are told to placate us,
a verbal placebo, words of empty promise.

What do my words describe but what I know?
An inexperienced existentialist, I know
enough to duck the really big questions in life.
Is there a purpose to life to which we apply
all of our energy, seeking the silver lining
that sometimes appears around dark clouds?

your thoughts are deep with this one. and to some I can relate.
your questions here on life will always drive debate
and if every silverlining should be found round darker clouds
Then you are closer to your answer, just reach above the crowds.
