Life

Life

A Poem by Carolann Dowsett

Where does my heart lie
where is my head
Am I really alive
or in the shadows of death

How funny life is
with all it's twist and turns
How hard we struggle
how little we learn

Is it even a reality
or a dream within a dream
An image of our souls
of what we want life to be

I wander through pathways
of shaddows and light
Reflections of our existence
spinning out of sight

I wish I could leave
escape the madness of this world
To soar within the heavens
free like a bird

But I must wait till the end
for my freedom to come
Cause there's no getting out
until the work is all done

A poem that flows well and rhymes nicely. Sometimes you can ponder too much. I do it, and I end up going round in circles. There is much to contemplate in your lines and I thank you for sharing this lovely post with us.

You are very welcome :)
True words spoken and woven into a subtle melody.
Is it all a dream? Perhaps a cruel joke? We'll just have to wait.
A marvelous creation that exposes my own hidden musings.

Life can be hard but it's the only game in town. Maybe one day we'll learn what the Dali Lama knows. I swear he's onto something we keep missing

A logical ending to this poem. I want to fly away and escape daily. Too much on my plate and I hope one day to know some peace. Thank you for sharing the realistic poem about life and hope.
