Bottle Rocket

Bottle Rocket

A Poem by moderndaypeterpan
"

Once again, just my thoughts. I only write when I feel truly passionate.

"

Whatever's after this life has to be the purest, most euphoric form of liberation.

Absolutely no limits.

As for now, on this Earth and in this life, I often get so happy that I have no idea what to do with it all.

It's almost a curse.

Because I have no where to put it,

I try to place it in the hearts of others,

But they rarely feel as strongly.

I'm cursed.

In the next life I will know exactly what to do with my euphoria.

And I will have people that feel exactly the same,

not a morsel more or less.

I am a bottle rocket

Building, building, building with pressure

Until the day I die,

And project into the limitless sky with limitless potential and not a boundary in sight

It is then when I may rest.

Beautiful write, It's very very rare to see a writing about someone who thinks they are too happy, although such a thing is possible =). I do agree with Jason. Also, living in the "now" as some say, or living just for a particular moment, is a mistake in my opinion, you must have an eye on the present and an eye on the future, move both eyes on either side is a mistake, glance at the past when your indecisive. I often have "Happy moods" in which I constantly smile or laugh no matter what happens, I also have the opposite, in which I constantly complain and frown even if you make water dance in front of me. Beautiful Write, excellent work =)

Wow. This is amazing. The empathy flows off the page.
The optimism is refreshing.

Boundless joy! That is who and what you are I think--at least that is what this poem reminds me of!

I agree with Jason and Shawn! Your honest words, style and spirit is a blessing that must be expressed in every moment otherwise you are denying yourself and others the joy of the offering. Keep writing!

Wow. What a soul brimming with positivity. It is truly a rarity to find someone with such a dilemma on the WC. But I disagree in one area. You have this immense positivity while on this earth for a reason, and it is to influence others with it, but not as much as you think you should. A bright smile and a joyful heart are contagious, and even if you affect a person just a little, it may bloom in their hearts in a way you never thought possible. A wonderful poem with an influencing message.

While I enjoy the writing style, and the poems optimism in general, I must forewarn that longing for the future and forgetting about the present in a mistake all too often made. Living your life for that one moment is a waste of every moment in between; and then when it comes, what happens then? And when it is nothing but a memory too.

Like Christmas, you wait and wait and wait, and then when it comes ... it never feels as epic as you thought. And then, it's gone ...

Anyway, what I am saying is, don't forget to enjoy each moment you have in this life; and don't put that happiness to waste! It is no "curse", but in fact a blessing regardless of whether people realize it or not :P
