Street Signs

Street Signs

A Poem by The Pain Stays Fresh

Inspired by a bit of my photography.

Why doesn't life have street signs
to show us where to go?

We're all lost in the flow
and left behind in the cold.

What is there
to save us from confusion?

We try in vain
to escape the pain.

The signs are there - its just we do not seem to spot them at the right time... notice this was 2012 write - hopefully, the 'signs' have become more instructive by now. Great theme and interesting read ... nice one ... :-)

Yeah ... I do agree with your this cool philosophy... But i've to share my words too with you so that i could help you a bit to recognize the signs of life ..

...Life has sings not just like streets signs but in the suit of every living and non-living beings. You can be get inspired yourself if you try finding your only one good thing from the thousands of your bad things... and if you be able to find that then at an every step you'll find the sing of life that does show you every-time to being inspired just as same as streets signs' ...

Am thankful to you that you penn'd up the write and shared on the cafe's site. It's a very thoughtful write. Keep on. Your cool.

Thanks. :)
True that...
If only life would show us some direction, give us some sort of sign so that we wouldn't fall off the path... But alas there is no street sign.
Thank you for writing this Cheyenne Harris, it really got me thinking!

it can drive one insane
like making the right turn, again
-and again.

Am I even driving?
where's the wheel- oh it's a boat!
where's the rudder

I'm gonna sink this ship-
if i make another

right turn.

cause what's left's, left me right around the corner
one more turn

and another

Wow! This is really good, and yeah, life is unpredictable, you never what's going to happen, and i agree: "Why doesn't life have street signs to show us where to go?..

I'm a total black sheep. I love reading, writing, talking, music older than I am, and watching old westerns on rainy days. I prefer writing stories and short poetry. You'd think by reading some of my.. more..
