I would like to be a writer. I began this site with amorous intentions, and over the course of time, I hope to have evolved as a male in an ever changing society that is today, recognizing the true beauty and elegance of woman. My words and notions will I hope respond in poetic verse of many genre and style. Come along and please share your ideas and insights. Thank you for your visit.

A Life Unfulfilled


Today I found myself

not happy, feeling lost, I suppose

embarrassed,

caught in a cycle of wonder,

in reflection,

I could imagine a better life

yet I’m told

we do often forget the world we leave behind,

while our future the way we desire

unfolds with little fanfare.

I’m not sure sometimes when I find myself here,

in this place,

this fortunate life,

when suddenly I conclude

our lives remain in a cycle of simple realism.

 

I don’t know what I’m saying

thus the pretense remains,

I will continue to move forward

despite my efforts otherwise,

I’m not unhappy to recognize my flaws,

I’m simply a life unfulfilled.

    i am struck by the feeling of your words… we forget how very fortunate we are, even in the face of disappointment. these words are lovely reminders that we do so often take the beauty of what we have for granted. i wish you peace.
