Resigning Perserverance

Resigning Perserverance

A Poem by RIch Hilliard

A very profound poem Tell me if it makes sense to you


If you look for the ugly, you'll eventually find it,

But it's trying to forget, so please don't remind it.

Let it move forward, please don't rewind it;

It's trying to be free, so please do not bind it!


I've got a new word, but I can't seem to rhyme it.

I broke a world record, but nobody timed it.

I made the perfect piece, but haven;t aligned it.

So the petition I made, nobody signed it!


Ideas coming, ideas leaving-

The truth has been told, but no one's believing.

Deception has left, but its still deceiving.

Goals have been reached, but they're still achieving.


Anchored down, bottoms up, 

Options once open, now they are shut.

Control has been lost, emotions erupt,

Ideals once held true, now are corrupt.


Happines sways with its belligerent ways.

Forever puzzled, trapped in a maze,

Resoused losing outcounted by days,

Yet nobdy answers the questions I raise.


Issues are suffering, trapped in denial,

Illusions are mocking copying its style.

Trying to stay happy, but cannot smile

All this hardwork is it worth while?

The hard work in a life make us stronger and wiser. Easy things leave us wanting more. Anything worthwhile we must fight to keep. A excellent poem. Made me think.

This is the best I've read to date - the poet REALLY came out to play on this one, and it flows nicely.

And trust me, all the hard work in the journey of the soul and relationship to a higher power is always, always worth it.

Well, to me your poem is saying the chaos and confusion of life/living is is on going and its pretty hard to figure out life and if what we're doing is really worth it because it doesn't really make sense at all!

A deeper written piece. Very nicely written and it takes on a few meanings.
