I have wandered too far,
Nearing death with blinding sight,
I sit with loneliness blocking the path of hope,
Lost dreams and foolish hopes shall fill my grave.
Little more wine and little more crying,
Still drowning in the sorrows of life,
My tears fall upon the blinding dust of the earth,
Feeling sorry for my own ingratitude.
Half the night I waste in my own penance,
Half the night I waste in dreams of folly,
In a wakeful dose I sorrow.
The waves can be high, the winds might slow you down, the path to success shall appear bleak. Mediocrity and fools shall cross your path making it impossible to fight another battle. Give all the tribulations a long hard stare with vengeance in your eyes. Be an upfront to nature, take your ship and go head on and face the storm.
The beauty lies in winning the battle of endurance, glory and triumph shall shine upon you.
A good poem is like a bright light, a ray of sunshine, a contribution to the universe and I wanted to share this quote by Dylan Thomas for all the poetry lovers on this beautiful Saturday evening.
“A good poem is a contribution to reality. The world is never the same once a good poem has been added to it. A good poem helps to change the shape of the universe, helps to extend everyone’s knowledge of himself and the world around him.”
― Dylan Thomas
Creativity is contagious, some foolish people trying to paint a picture on a blank canvas, according to them the earth might be some different shape or color and just trying to make a sense of their art and explore new horizons.
Business, medicine, engineering, politics, these all are gracious entities being pursued by people to sustain life but these are not the reasons why life goes on. We need creativity in our lives to replenish our soul, to fill the void, to answer the unanswered questions about life. Creativity can be admired, it has the beauty and it is love. To quote Pablo Piccasso “Everything you can imagine is real”, imagination has the power to make things real and creativity personifies it.
