A Poem by Chloe..Across the Universe

just popped into my head out late one night looking at the sky


 Hello -


You have questions

Yes, I have questions -

What are your questions

Who  am I -

You don't remember

No -

How long since you forgot who you are

Not since I was born into this world -

You've forgotten,

I can't remember -

But you can,

I remember somewhat -

 I knew you could if you tried and you will continue to know
as long as you keep thinking

Why am I here?
suffering is hard
it breaks the soul bends the spirit
puts you in a place you don't want to be -

Does it
It is a lesson you must learn

Always I have heard this, I don't understand the reasoning.. it seems almost cruel in a sense, strife, heartache , heartbreak,tears suffering.. death,
Why? -

This is all life is to you 'You seem to have forgotten some things some things still not remembered, laughter, people, moon, stars, sky, children, animals , family, friends, heart, soul, spirit
you have it all yet you question your exsistence,  you question life

Life is not always the way we want it

No -

You know you are the master of your destiny you are the one who makes your life what it is or isn't
do you understand ?

Yes, I understand -

And is it what you want it to be


No -

You know what you must do

Yes, I know

But why all the suffering throughout mankind? -

For everything, there is an opposite this is how it has to be, love, hate, joy, sorrow, wealth, poverty, birth, death
do you understand these are life's lessons we all must learn yet
these things do not last forever
nothing is forever except love do you understand?

 We have to go through hardships, trials, and tribulations to attain happiness
these things though hard will not always be, nothing is forever except love
we are the masters of our fate
we choose what path our lives will take -

I think you understand now

Do you know who you are?

Yes, I remember well who I am
thank you -

You're welcome

Who are you? -

Who do you think I am

Examine your soul for holes

it is like an internal conversation back and forth,,,,we often have the answers within ourselves but they can get buried by all the business of life. that is why writing is so therapeutic, we often find the answers that were lying within, all along. good job..... And it takes a lifetime of self discovery to find out who we are, and a willingness to take risks, no matter what age.

Two angels went forth and gazed upon the earth then returned to give their report.
Said the first angel, " It is a place of war, destruction, famine and plague. There is hatred, greed, pride, jealousy and prejudice in every heart of man. Woe be unto the earth because of its inhabitants." The second angel spoke and said, "I have seen these things as well but I must add also that it is a place of astounding beauty, glorious vistas, magnificent animals and wonderful sun filled days. I have seen snow peaked mountains, moonfilled nights and tasted clear waters. There is love and laughter, hope and an abounding power of faith surging in the veins of mankind. The creatures exibit such tenderness with their young and strive to learn and grow...they build buildings in which they gather to learn knowledge and to pray and worship YOU, oh God" Things are seldom perfect...but it does not diminish the worth of those things which are. The common stone does not distract from the beauty of a polished diamond simply because they are both rocks. I enjoyed this read dear. Lovely thoughts you are entertaining!

This conversational style sang to me... the questions and responses filling in gaps within my mind... speaking into the darkness. I related all to well to the ponderings.. so profoundly voiced.

yep, it's all in the spaces.
everything you wanted to know then all ya gotta do is choose.

it is
they are
I am
whatever, albeit, so be it.

good stuff. good questions, nice choice.

yes, it's very interesting how when one is engulfed in feelings of hopelessness one quickly forgets all the greatest parts of life and looks at it through that one lens... one would do well to make sure he keeps his other lenses close at hand. this one rings of higher wisdom and Truth... seemingly brought from "On High"

An interesting way into a dialogue with the soul... Indeed suffering develops us and is part of our very existence, from the moment of pain and suffering that produces new life... one cannot be without the other... pain and pleasure... all connected in our beings... It is who we are

This was brilliant.
Sorry I came across it so late!
But I'm blown away.
You've clearly mastered this. This is an inspiration, a life lesson if you will.
