Wonder of it All

Wonder of it All

A Poem by EmeraldFacet


I always thought I knew where I wanted to go
When I was a child- quite a long time ago

I always thought I knew what I wanted to be
Never would have imagined the day to dawn to actually see

I always thought the world was a pretty neat and small place
Now I know that there is much more out there-
so much more complex than this small, simple and confined space

I always thought it was commendable to exude confidence and strength
But now Im incapable of displaying fragility- even at my greatest length

I always thought Father Time would alter alter my perception
Could have never conceived any more of a disconcerting alteration

I thought I saw my future 
Just four short years ago
Full of luster and excitement
A vastly fascinating show
However, molded by reality and sculpted actuality
I stand to here now to only wonder
About love and life and peculiar universal morality

I've never seen actuality/morality rhymed together before. Well done!

Filled with...wonder.

"I always thought I knew where I wanted to go
When I was a child- quite a long time ago "
Hard to hold on to children hope and dreams. We need to keep our hope alive to keep us young in heart.
"I always thought Father Time would alter alter my perception
Could have never conceived any more of a disconcerting alteration "
I like the ending to the outstanding poem. Better to laugh and dance then cry and be depressed.

Now this is a poem that I can relate to. I love the structure you have used for this piece, it flows so well and the tempo picks up right where its needed. I love the innocent assumptions you start with and how you then tell the reverse of those. I am definitely going to check out more of your work, thank you for sharing.
