Fearlessly

Fearlessly

A Poem by mattavelli
"

.!.

"
Come on, my friend, embrace life's pain,
the heartbreaks, and your death to come.
Don't drench yourself in worry's rain
and drag through soggy days, so glum.
Go slam your dreams upon that drum
that rages in your chest so sure
as breaths you seize approach their sum
and fearless thoughts are all that's pure.

There's comfort in the wallowing
and moaning when life's oh so tough,
but poison's all you're swallowing
and tainted confidences bluff.
Don't fantasize that hope's enough.
Break free. The action is the cure.
Be willful and grind smooth those rough
and fearful thoughts. And, bleed them pure.

The world's a blaze and you a spark,
a flame, soon smoke and blown out ash;
so burn on 'til your skies are dark
and strangle time 'til moments flash.
And, on that final breeze, you thrash,
through whipping winds you won't endure,
let all the gods proclaim you brash
and fearless and a life so pure
.

I meant the bobble head! Did you have your own bobble head made?
This is an instant perk-up Matt. Very well worded and the rhyme seamlessly fits the mood. Enjoyable read. Well done.

Thank you, Mallika! :)
Describes the word "Fearlessly" and "Courage" Perfectly. The quote: "Don't fantasize that hope's enough," will always be everyone's first choice of when everything turns into chaos, but NO. Hope is strong, hope is powerful, but there's always something that holds the hope in place. That plays a role to keep everyone's dreams alive. Which is Courage, fearless and bravery.

WOW....how have I not seen your work before??... lol loving this outstanding piece of yours. embracing life's pains to (gods) God proclaim you brash... wonderful imagery and certainly thought provoking sentiments for sure...My only suggestion..would be in the layout of the poem. Prehaps a larger font..and split the stanzas for better flow. :-) Very nicely done, I enjoyed reading.

Yo Bro, this poem is deep, full of meaning, metaphors and amazing imagery.
I love the way the rhymes scheme is structured,
and the refrain that adds musicality to the whole piece and the overall flow.
Word for word, the poem fulfils its role in encouraging us all to be fearless. And it is so true that fear has stopped many humans from reaching their full potential.

WELL DONE!!!!

Thank you, BlakPrince! :)
your poem lifts me old heart ..theme and actions provided seem spot on wisdom to me .. reminds me of Dylan Thomas and : "Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.Jul 7, 2011"
title is perfect ..integral to your poem...V1 really speaks to me ..its so important to embrace all of our lives ..big and small happy and sad .. failures and victories .. all parts of the whole ... we all have frightening dark corridors with a dark locked door at the end... we need that good courage you speak of to face it, open it .. and go inside .. perhaps what we find is a miraculous surprise ... so glad i read this one .. hope to take it with me on my days journey ;)
