Developing the Now-Only-Eyes


  • pocketofdreams6
  • If I speak in the tongues of men and angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a tinkling symbol. And if I have prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And if I dole out all my goods, and if I deliver my body that I may boast but have not love, nothing I am profited. Love is long suffering, love is kind, it is not jealous, love does not boast, it is not inflated. It is not discourt

Poem Commentary

When I am 60 years old, I don't want to look back and think to myself, "I wish I would have done it a different way." Essentially I'm looking into the future, and how I envisioned my path if I were to continue living this way by always playing it safe, and never taking chances; <-- I am deeply analyzing that, Then coming back into the present, to where I now have a better understanding of what needs to be done.

Developing the Now-Only-Eyes

If only I knew now what I knew back then, now I’m old and withered, jaded and half decayed, time projection, slightly delayed, portrayed in space as a new born porcelain boy, where my mind will use wisdom worn force, in an effort to destroy the passive aggressive actions practiced in my previous course ~

Today is my thirtieth birthday.  The next thirty years of my life has already happened.  The reason I have progressed forward towards this fragmented frame is to fix the fractures and file change…  or…  More along the lines, to MAKE something of this life; this life I had once wasted away like the gray shades of death - Unlike today it was unlike today - Where my vision listens within a new light; a blue breath.  I can now visibly create those silver steps; I control, overcome, and anticipate, alleviate the pain by bleeding my red paint cells upon the page.  I now have the gift of understanding to guide forth to my next test; leaving behind all the falsehood perceptions of deceit at the gate.

Oh thank you!  Sweet God for showing me this place so eloquently pure, in truth and beauty - It was in that moment that I had awaken from a dream, with a futuristic taste in my mouth.  It is my thirtieth birthday, and the time now reads today, and now-only-eyes stare straight into a sun, it knows what needs to be done.

I liked this, pocket...I tend to deal in being rudely awakened to the sad aspects of life, and i love when i read better things not couched in happily ever after, or blissful lives.. lol

It is unlikely you qill get to escape all regrets, but thinking you have kept them at a minimum will let you sleep at nights. Even at 60. You lost your poetic perspective when you made onelone verb all caps, and then i heard s street preacher on a soap box pleading for a paradigm change out of the scuffling rabble at the fringes of the listening circle. Amen brother, preach! Harv

I like this, the futuristc taste. the imagery kicks in 8 fold there, It's a great thing to discover oneself and to post a flag marker, of conviction, and vows. May the journey you take me blest. You are a great as far as Im concern'd, Happy Holiday, WS

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
