Random But Important Ramblings

Random But Important Ramblings

A Poem by Tomi

Trust not all words of men; search what’s in their hearts

Flattery is an art of ages: Most people are excellent at it

Live like there’s a tomorrow; hope keeps you strong

Life is not short: it goes by quickly

If wishes were horses; if gold was sand

If time were reversible; I’d hold your hand

 

Kids: tomorrow’s leaders? I laugh

Who are we kidding, not with our leaders?

Leaders of tomorrow; tomorrow already passed

Now is tomorrow, now is the future

Teach a child to lead now; so when he’s a man, he’d already be a Man

This is....SOOOO COOL!!!! The title was what really caught my eye but I loved the writing just as much :D Just random little things that never seem like they'd be able to fit together but somehow you make them fit together perfectly :D Good job!!! I love the second line in the first stanza especially...so true.

Theres a thought i need to heed I always am swayed by their apparent civility only to find they are not so nice

Interesting title and poem, important ramblings indeed, especially in a second stanza, leaders...give a man leadership and he'll go crazy with power, that's what this century is all about...anyway great poem, and raises a lot of questions about the world today...great job

Hahahaha, these are certainly random thoughts, but quite true. I found the second stanza especially funny, considering I'm still a kid :P hahaha, there was such truth in this, but I know how you felt.. Sometimes we just have a whole bunch of random thoughts that we want to let out. I usually write separate poems, instead of merging all the subjects together, but whatever works (: this is quite interesting.. the human brain is quite a wonder.

WOW! Such a simple truth. though i still feel a little humour among those lines, i love the style you used in conveying your message, a subtle kind of way of crawling upon our minds and getting your message across. Your ending especially was spectacular you made me review my opinion about one huge aspect of life with a smile on my face. One should endeavour to grab now to be assured of an amazing later. Thanks for sharing such amazing wonder.

my pleasure..thank you so much!
Your words are true. Today change must happen. If we wait too long. Nothing good will be left. Today children are starving on every continent. Three million a month died from starvation and HIV. But the foolish goal of oil, gold, land and diamond lead man to a dead end road. Today is the day. The poor must overcome the greed of the men in-charge somehow? A powerful poem my friend. You made me think. Thank you for the outstanding poem.
