The Walk

The Walk

A Poem by Morgan Masters
"

A woman remembers the past, admires her present and contemplates her future.

"

I have the company of many,

but not great company they keep.

For time is of the essence and yet still they do sleep.


I await on bated breath,

the seconds until I shall see,

the face's that I seek, with eyes that burn so deep.


Countless moments are cherished

Countless hours are lost,

Countless memories are admired, although some I do gloss.


Fresh flowers I do tread upon,

they lay across the ground,

My feet recount the steps of many, friends sleeping safe and sound.


Inescapable that I am here,

Time passes ever so quick,

Friends are waiting there for me, shock shows no trick.


In the ground they slumber,

all of my old friends,

And today I shall join them, for today it is my End.

A wonderful poem. I enjoyed reading this a great deal. It really made you think of someone contemplating their life. I did like the ending too. After reading the ending, I reread the poem again and understood it a lot more. It made me think of an old lady looking back on her life and thinking about all the things she did and all the friends she had. I can say nothing bad about this and can find nothing wrong with it.

Great write draws conclusion in sad yet true statement.
My most favorite part:
"In the ground they slumber,

all of my old friends,

And today I shall join them, for today it is my End."

Your work is insightful and easily envelopes the reader daring you to look and find the beauty in the stark and sometimes ugly. It's a rare gift. Go with it.

The best advice I ever got was: Embrace all criticism, because even the bad reviews mean they cared enough to read it.
