WriteBeLight

Restless

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 ! !!
