Children of the Sun

Children of the Sun

A Poem by Lola_Bee


How does one explain the insatiable thirst for adventure

By hook or by crook we’re nailed to the ground

Openly voicing our faith enamored with danger

Swiftly we are shushed to conform

Ours souls are destined to brace the storm

 

30 years I’ve followed a map pinpoint from birth

I deny the route in its entirety , I know my worth

I am greater than I am meant to be or even think I could be

My core within is the root of a tree

My leaves are fallible yet I breathe life into thee

 

Bear my fruit in this concrete jungle which marks the earth?

Water, Fire ,air and earth, we call these element for rebirth

Remove the blindfolds and lets become one

For We are the Children of the Sun

I agree with the below lines.
"Bear my fruit in this concrete jungle which marks the earth?
Water, Fire ,air and earth, we call these element for rebirth
Remove the blindfolds and lets become one
For We are the Children of the Sun "
One earth and one people. Thank you dear Lola for sharing the amazing poetry.

Very inspiring piece Lola_Bee.
We can always be more than we are expected to be.
Rising above the barriers put up by our communities.

Beautifully rendered! We have lost that sense of oneness and connectedness...unity seems a dream of late but this returns the focus...lovely :)

Well, you have got depth in your words. You have adopted a serious tone which conveys your message pretty vividly. The ending is pretty nice. Good use of rhyme too. The choice of words is commendable. Excellent work. Keep writing.

Beautifully capturing the dreams, ambitions and fallibilities of us all, as we lose sight of the adventure for life that youth gives us, only for us to be told to behave and act our age, which is a statement no one knows how to follow. I still have no idea what a 48 year old is meant to act like, so I make sure to throw in the occasional handstand, before rolling down a hill :)
Beautiful words.
