The Journey Of A Man


It was just the last moment
That i was gifted life,
By Heaven's caring arms
I came into the world.
To smile and play with all a zeal,
Innocent of the life and
Unwilling to school,
I played a many mischief
Leaving behind unforgettable memories,
Then all of a sudden,
I entered the adolescent
To grow and think and feel and understand
What actually life is all about,
Then slowly a more stronger man
With a puissant mind, trenchant eyes,
fantabulous grin, and-
a heart mingled with a thousand chords,
And then a liable man,
A little more serious, a little more old,
A little more understanding,
A little more hardworking,
Moving with the fast ballad of life
To reach a slow age-
The grand age,
with wrinkled skin, bespectacled eyes,
and grey hair,
A weak self with more stronger
thoughts,
Moving joyously...slowly...
To Close the eyes-
to see the heaven..
and vanish into the stars above
And twinkle for a life all over again.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
