A Deeper Meaning


A life of fire
burns deep inside

As the days
and nights pass
a desire for truth
and meaning burn deeper...

We are not alone

    No we are not alone. A desire for truth is a passion of many today. We just want people to be totally honest with us. Great poem, thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Thank you Dave! ! ! So much truth runs through what you write, it is so very inspiring and beautiful not only to the eyes to see but the soul to feel. Yes, we are never alone, that burning fire deep inside keeps reminding us that we are never alone. Thank you again! Love and Light. (Report) Reply

    There are many awakening Dave. A quote that I once sent Eric: 'It is in solitude that we are least alone'! !
    So, so True! !

    Thankyou.

    FEW WORDS BUT HUGE IN CONTENT, NO WONDER THE TITLE A DEEPER MEANING.
    IS A GREAT WORK AND ITS GREATNESS IS ONLY HEIGHTENED BY THE DESIRE FOR TRUTH.......... (Report) Reply

    Everyone can have their own interpretation of a poem. This is a poem that everyone can relate to, sparking thoughts that wouldn't have come about otherwise. I like it. (Report) Reply

    I like that idea; that as we grow older- we search harder for meaning, for reasons, for living, and why we are here at all..we are cool embers outside but all volcanic heat inside, where nobody sees..great stuff here. (Report) Reply

    could it be that the presence that keeps us from being alone is also responsible for the fire...or IS the fire? ........very spiritual :) I like it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
