A Poem by Ana B.

There is something I must do, somewhere I must be,

My default setting nowadays…

Mind is filled with infinite debris

Searching for the easier ways

           To live, breathe, dream.

And as the night sky is the splendor’s theme,

I tend to shy away from the Sun.

Yet my thirsty mind takes a dip in the stream

And by the overflow of empty words is being outdone.


Trying to listen to that inner melody

That gives the thought some sense of direction,

Will that bring me closer to that long sought revelry?

Can it be just my inner insecurity’s projection?


The greatest trial starts within,

And ends in the same place.

Such limiting concepts as ‘’lose’’ or ‘’win’’

Are nothing but drops in the timeless ocean of no space.


And if something has no space, does it really exist?

Or maybe such reflection is just a time killer…

And yet, by a loud whisper I am being kissed:

Perhaps the world is nothing but my own mirror?

Thank you for pausing here JE Falcon :)
Lose, win yes they are concepts that may confine us. Playing the game, playing our role in life, captaining our own ship...there lies the accomplishments...the inner spirit sated...
we are what we write and we write what we victory, no defeat....just IS.

" my thirsty mind takes a dip in the stream" fantastic line! It seems we do limit ourselves. Remember the song, "Already Gone?" In that song, there is a line that says, "So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains and we never even know we have the key." That is what came to my mind as I read your words. I enjoyed this poem. Lydi** PS, I also loved the artwork!
