Wow! What a truly amazing, poetic write! An epic poem which cast a spell over this reader and held me a willing captive from the first to the final line in the poem. Tears rolled down my face towards the end and I love how you wove the relevant words of the song into the final lines of the poem. Such a poignant, yet powerful poem! Your heart, as well as your pen, was on fire as you inked it. The ending was crushing, the words dripped tears, I was not alone in crying. Yet, I also felt your inner strength as I read. You are a Master Craftsman, dear poet! I am grateful to you for sharing. I will return to read Part 2, but not today, my heart is soggy, like a wet rag, but will dry out and I shall return. Bless you always, dear L. B...

After Adam and Eve, did God go back to the drawing board. At least he kept the humble apple tree. Class write.

Stop living in words
Stop living on rules
Go out
Venture and fall
What is to live
If lived by rules of all
No dictionary defines us
No atlas to score
Where does the imagination die
And where does one resurrect in time
Truly said
Let’s catch the moments and live upon

if Choice remains choose Kindness, I beg

It’s a great poetry dear poet. So stark but so true. It represents the exact minds and yet teaches us to come back and find empathy that we have lost. It’s revolutionary. Such mindful words. Telling us to return after being lost. Telling us to let go the remorse. Very much needed. Such wise words indeed needed and appreciated dear poet.

Kindness to all is the only way to be so that we can look back on our lives and say, \"I did my best for others.\".

Marie said:

It only our ego we satisfy when we take pleasure in seeing others bend under the weight of life and we take pleasure in their plight. Regardless of our circumstances, the choice is ours alone to make, to be kind to others or not. Humility is a wonderful virtue which every human being is not blessed with, sadly. Of course, it is never too late or we are never too old to change our ways, but it is unlikely that age will bring change if our mind is elevated in egoistic tendencies. Old age brings its own problems with it, but so many of our age group have never had the privilege of reaching it. We express our sadness at the previlige they were denied and with a grateful and humble heart carry on to the end of our journey in this lifetime. A very insightful write, an astute observation of human nature with very wise words in this superbly penned poem, dear poet. A privilege to read! Thank you for sharing...

My dearest Mek, I\'m going to say what a empathetic poem you write today, I feel you work within an office environment, but I have always thought you could also be a social worker for teenagers, you have a special gift of saying it in poetry yet exactly as it is the truth even when it\'s ugly yet always with such hope and passion in your belief that if we can change one young mind and help we can also climb Everest together. Wow that all just came out of me. Thank you ... You are a beautiful poet my friend. 🌞

Dear Friend
Marie said:

The faithful shadow of love resides with us when our loved one isn\'t with us. It is a shadow of pure golden light and it never leaves us. There is no space between two people who love each other, they are always together in heart, in mind and in spirit. That is where the shadow comes in, hers is always with you and yours is always with her. Love transcends both time and space for lovers and in so few words you have captured that superbly in this succinct poetic gem, dear L. B. Thank you for sharing as I wish you a very blessed and beautiful day to enjoy! Bless you always, dear poet...

London’s, scarlet seasons
Robert Haigh said:

My eldest son and family used to live in South London, and it can be a scary place to be at night, especially if you are alone. They relocated to Bristol, mainly for work opportunities - that may sound strange, but it is true. Ironically, he has since found himself commuting to London for some of his work activity. Any big city can be menacing after dark. Your poem makes the reader stop and think! The future looks bleak, in some ways, but hope is not quite dead yet. Yes, a thought-provoking poem!

London’s, scarlet seasons
Marie said:

A very powerfully inked Masterpiece from your poetic pen, dear L. B. I love how you use Mother Nature\'s seasons to depict horrifying events on the streets of London. It is similar in Ireland now, the drug culture has taken over here, even in the small and beautiful town I have lived in all my life, and where the residents now live in fear. Such a sad reflection on our youth today. Unlike dear Teddy, I am not as optimistic and I don\'t hold out much hope for a future built on the young people today because they seem to have no hope themselves except to live in an unknown world to most of us. So many young people have lost their lives through the use of drugs, but those who follow in their footsteps don\'t ever seem to learn. A very poignant, skillful write, dear L.B. but it is also a wake up call for those who are in charge to do something to help young people before it is too late. Thank you for sharing this prestigious, distinctive write, dear Poet. Appreciation with gratitude...

Do damn powerful, having been born and bred in the streets of South London, I so appreciate this magnificent realistic piece of poetry, a few years ago I was watching from afar yet horrified of the youth battle with knives, I see so much in here as I always do but because I too have a passion for young people and showing that even in the most dire of surcamstances there can always be hope I applaud this poem with sincere applause and Kudos on your last lines. Very clever to use the seasons L.B Bravo.

MendedFences27 said:

To escape the weariness of day to day living spend but a few minutes with a new born. What is it about babies that break down the powerful walls of humanity? Sad men laugh. Lonely men smile. Brokenhearted men are healed. All by the gurgling, giggling, little infant.
Oh by the way, nice poem. - Phil A.

Seeing beyond the illusion isn\'t an easy task for some beautiful souls, sadly. Some go through life asleep, they never wake up! They have no idea what awareness is or how it would help them if they were aware. I guess we are all on different steps of the spiritual ladder. We are given a life, not to endure but to enjoy and that desire to live must come from deep within us and it will when we begin to live our life for \'us\' and allow everybody else to do the same. I love your reference to the Dutch Philosopher too! Wonderful, in depth penning, dear L.B. So enjoyed reading, and will be back to read it again! Thank you for sharing. Wishing you a very nice evening as I also wish you a very Happy October filled with an abundance of beautiful blessings for you to enjoy, dear poet...
