An Unused Side โ€“ Breathing To The Next Ground

Keep breathing...panting;
In regret...then let go;
All of the past...are thrown to the side;
All of the possible bright futures...are carried towards the flow.


Not knowing what comes later;
Not knowing right after,
Not knowing if one should be a martyr;
Not knowing if things will be harder...or easier;
Not knowing if tomorrow will be livelier;
Not knowing the right answer;
Not knowing if time would go faster;
Not knowing if this is right, wrong...or better;
Not knowing if other people could hear.


Like a prayer...Silent;
Like a heart...Resilient;
Like a Lion...Determined;
Like The Air...Unshaken.


Do you see it?
The Rising Heat?
Out of weariness...out of grief;
An insane form of disbelief.


Please be is here;
To go to another place...quietly;
To stay and be still...I would not be steady;
Have to keep going...this unknown desire.


Pillars of Life...Wisdom;
Balls of clear;
Eyes shut...feels like home.


Blessings and Light,



    Thanks once again J44 for a great video and an equally great POEM ! In my very short time on PLANET EARTH (36 years !) I have learned one key motivation ~ YOU HAVE TO KEEP GOING ! Love your third STANZA ~ SILENT (like Prayer) RESILIENT (like Heart) DETERMINED (like Lion) UNSHAKEN (like Air) We all have unknown desires ~ we all need to keep going ~ day by day by day ! Fear ~ Wisdom ~ Light & Dark ~ these too are traits which ~ keep us going !

    Blessings & Light to You & Yours
    Love BRIAN & ANGELA ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’š

    'very short time on Planet Earth (36 years!)??

    No way...I mean, it is not short (to me), and you will be much much longer and continue on to do great things.
    At least, that's how I see it.
