WriteBeLight

Restless


Notice of absence from WriteBeLight
Here I go again .... have to be away for awhile. Not very long, though. Family, home and work are pulling me away, for now. Do not worry. With the exception of family and home, I will not let work take from me too much time to do what I love.... compose poetry. :)

I sit here unsettled,

Like something’s missing.

This nagging feeling,

In my ears, keeps ringing.

 

Feeling as though,

I left a stone unturned.

That there’s so much out there,

For me still to learn.

 

What of these thoughts,

Just wasting my time?

Do they contain a message,

I've been yearning to find?

 

It’s these types of things,

Keep me up through the night.

As I strive to improve,

The quality of my life.

 

And, the saying goes,

Not the destination, but journey,

Yet, I long for the calm,

In a world free from worry.

        Thanks HONEY for another elegantly penned POEM. I guess all our lives are a process of searching for the missing pieces in the Jig~saw of our lives ! My experience is ~ SEEK and ye shall FIND ~ AMEN ~ Yours BRIAN.

          I do get restless sometimes. I try to think my way through things, but sometimes it takes longer than I wish. Thanks for the comment Dear Brian!

          Good write. The journey is the important thing in our lives.

          • WriteBeLight

            Yes. Learning along the way. Sometimes, though, I get restless thinking about things that are left undone. Just have to be patient. Thanks Goldfinch!

            I'VE FOUND MYSELF* UPON THE ATTAINMENT* OF SOME SENSE OF TRANQUILLY - SECURITY & FREEDOM FROM WORRY - I MANAGE TO PLUNGE MYSELF - ONCE AGAIN INTO THE HELL* OF [ PROBLEMS ]* ! NEVER UNDERESTIMATE * THE POWER OF (NO PROBLEMS)* & TRANQUITLY* TO FADE* INTO TURMOIL !

            • WriteBeLight

              Tranquility ... great point OUTBACK :) Need some turmoil to appreciate the tranquility, I guess.

              • OUTBACK

                SOMEWHAT BUT* NOT EXACTLY ! I NEED NOT BE DRUNK* TO APPRECIATE SOBRIETY ! IT'S JUST THAT I PERSONALLY HAVE A HABBIT OF BACKING MYSELF INTO A WALL & THEN WONDER ? HOWD THAT HAPPEN ? DEINAL* HAS A HABBIT* OF MANIFESTING - IN DUE COURSE OF TIME ALL MANNER OF DIRE STRAIGHTS ! !!
