More to this life

More to this life

A Poem by Edward Lancheister
"

many things can be perceived and interpret

"



Wake up and ponder for a moment

make a cup of coffee and stand near the window open

it's a beautiful morning with a slight of music sounds

from my record player, slowly make me move around

 

what more of this life could give

more than just spend time in darkness and brokenness

pull my head straight up to see 

there so much chance already await with openness

 

Hope is  waving her hands

calling out my name for returning

let go all the sorrow and fulfil my demands

pull together all the strength and start walking

 

why should I look down into darkness

if I could look up into lightness

why should I feel brokenness and sorrow

if I could stand up and start a new beginning 

 

there's more to this life

more than living and dying, struggle to be fought in 

no time to be drown in sorrow and pain

safe courage and strength to revive

 

There's more to this life, that could bring new experience 

open a new page with no more deviants

finding myself in ultimate satisfaction

now is the time for action

This line really hit me. Coming from a very bad break up a couple of years ago, I am slowly learning to move on. This is beautiful and it somehow stirred strength in me I had forgot that I possessed. Thank you Edward for such a beautiful and motivating write.

thanks for the review David.
Hello Edward... coming from the other side of 50 I say with some small measure of experience... there is always more to life, every moment counts and every step takes us somewhere.
I enjoyed this, because you weave life within it, with all its ups and downs.

Who knows how much time any of us has... shine brightly is my motto.
