"Wondering about a second life"

"


By: SeemsPoetic



If you were to ever be looking for me
I'll be where I feel the most free

Standing with my feet in the water

 

Wondering about a second life

 

Waiting to see
When and where the sun meets the sea
You will find me where the tides touch the sky
Where the fire red

Meets the ocean blue                            
Where sun rays reach out to fly
Watching such a sight helps me realize
As time goes by
Like as if it were human
The beauty of a sunset soon dies
It fades into dark
Nothing left but the stars shining bright
Light years apart

Out there...
Somewhere unknown


What would a second life be like
Is it heaven
Is it  home  
Or...

Is it trapped out there

All alone

 

Is there excitement

Or…

Peaceful silence

 

Is there such thing as time there
Or perhaps…

It is endless

 

Is there sanity in a second life
Or maybe…

Joyful madness

 

If  it ends…
Does it come again
Or might
it…

Only last a couple moments

 

Is  t h e r e…

A better place than  h e r e


It makes me wonder what another life is
If we get another life out there

Or is it possible…

 

This is our only life

So…

 

Is it truly  p r i c e l e s s

 

I do not know but I can say this

If you were to ever be looking for me
I'll be right where I feel the most free

Standing with my feet in the water


Watching the sunrise
Because it reminds me of us all
It has a rise and fall
And yet still…

Every moment of it is precious
Just like the miracle that this thing called life is

The highs and the lows

In the end…

Just like a sunrise or sunset

 


They both...

I saw a video of the setting sun blazing red. The waves of the sea were breaking tall. Then the red glow of the sun filled the breaking waves with fire as each wave dispersed back into the body of blue, I waited for the new one to boldly crest. Your poem is vivid and amazing words that mirror my mind as memory plays the video.

Thank you for entering!

I really liked these two lines:
Where the fire red
Meets the ocean blue

Simple, yet effective.

Once again, thank you, and keep up the good work!

A stunning write, vivid imagery, poetic questions. This quest alone is the ground for poetry I believe. Beautiful.

This is beautiful! I absolutely adore it. Engaging, intriguing, emotional, unique. Really an excellent poem. I really like the third stanza and also the part that says....

"What would a second life be like
Is it heaven
Is it home
Or...

Is it trapped out there
All alone"

Excellent write, and very thought provoking. Well done.
