    The river will flow,
    And wind will blow,
    Hope carries on,
    When the kindness is gone,
    We're all alone in this new city,
    With streets of sorrow and pity,
    And I'm not sure why.

    But if you keep listening,
    To the devil's offering,
    When the words are free,
    You can so easily see,
    The thoughts your seeding,
    Have all started bleeding,
    Until there is one.

    So I will walk to the sky,
    Over tower and ledge,
    To see everything below
    And if I cry to myself,
    Will the tears fall down?
    Because all that I know,
    Is this is all that I know.



    Infrequently Soulful,
    Archival

    Hello deep thinker. Your poem is certainly food for thought and very visual - a very important factor in separaing a very good poem from a "standard" poem. A meditative flow is beautiful I think...don't you?. :sand:

    Evil feeds off of evil, until a positive force comes in....I agree with queentswana, I like your style.

    hey

    Well thanks for the words, always good to stop by the place to see how things are....

    Sorry to those that know me that I am no longer as frequently soulful as during our pre-destee days. I see so much has changed, yet everything is much the same. I'm amazed that I have yet to top 50 posts here, considering I've been a member since way back in 2001.

    Either way, know that I stop by every so often for the flow, to recharge and share.


    Infrequently Soulful,
    Archival
