The Abstract Unknown

The Abstract Unknown

A Poem by Lena Rossmore


I am the dirt and soil of Africa,

The mother tongue I speak.

I am the ticking clock of childhood

Turning into years so bleak.

I am the heartbeat of my mother,

The pulsating veins of my dad.

I am the woes and worries of everyone;

The feelings, good and bad.

I am a figment of your fantasy;

An idea in your head.

I am not something that can be defined,

But an abstract unknown instead.

Thank you :)
This is organized so well. I like the 9th and 10th verse, in so many ways, it's beautiful, and it's stuck in my head. I like the description and very well expressed feelings.
Thanks for sharing..Keep it up buddy! :D
