Flesh and bones

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

Life is to be lived. Need to celebrate being alive.

"

 













          Flesh and bones

(Need a positive poem. Life is to be celebrated. Each day is a gift.)


I fell from the top of the mountain.

I stood with so many victories.

I realized too late.
They don't mean too much.

Beautiful young woman sitting between my legs.

She looked up.
Told me, "It don't matter anyway.

We are only flesh and bones."

I sat by the ocean.

Watching the her  power and  beauty.

The ocean is heartless.

So dangerous and tempting.

Woman with sad eyes sat with me.

She wished she was a better person.

I told her.

We are but flesh and bones.

In time we will fade away to distance memories.

I gave everything away.

I roamed with the poets and the musicians.

We sat late into the night together on lonely Monterey beaches.

Drinking and talking of things that was and were to be.

The singer sang a love song.

When he is done.

He told me.
" Love doesn't really mean too much.

We are but flesh and bones."

Just here awhile to try to celebrate being alive.

We danced and ran the lonely beaches.

We said a prayer to our God.
 For one more day to be alive and free.

For we are but flesh and bones.

life can be cruel if you think about the 100 reasons to cry but i think life is beautiful thinking about the 1000 reasons to smile. alot of my old freinds didn't realize that which is probably why i was the last man standing with a smile. great poem is was enlightment to me :)

What a touching poem. It made me feel sad a moment then I realized the truth and it doesn't have to be sad. We are only here for a while, celebrate life, enjoy it as much as we can. We are, like your poem says, only flesh and bones.

"Just here awhile to try to celebrate being alive."

Such a fundamental truth that we lose sight of so easily. Thank you for sharing - we can all use the reminder now and again.

Through all unfortunate circumstances, and with the glory of the good ones, we come to realize in the end that we are but flesh and bones! You have done an outstanding job of delivering a powerful message!
I am grieved to learn of the suicide of your two brothers! You are to be admired for overcoming adversity by re-joining the Army and realizing life can be OK!
BRAVO to you!!

Life is so complicated, and the gist of it is that it is nothing more than we make it. It is merely the cup holder holding the tools we use to shape the raw clumps of clay that we are, to form what we become...
As all I have read of your work thus far, Masterfully Outstanding work, my friend. Very much so. Your works carry a weight of meaning, and a message of positivity that has no end. Both very much in need in these days we are facing... Thank you for sharing your art with the world.
