DUST

There's dust on my bible,
For what am I liable,
Sometimes I get so confused.

I put it aside,
It's been a rough ride,
Sometimes belief's hard to choose.

So many opinions,
Who to join of the minions,
Wondering what the truth really is as I muse.

My heart holds a few,
Though I love all of you,
The less I have, the less I can lose.

Everyone, should love every one,
Laughter, from the rise, to the set of the sun,
But we bitch and complain, and just keep payin' our dues.

I like funny songs,
And sing alongs,
But all I keep hearin's the blues.

So where is this going,
How do I know, what I'm knowing,
Maybe I missed something during a snooze.

Everything is so blurry,
Time's in such hurry,
We all want, but nobody knows who's is who's.

Well, we're all in this,
That we can't dismiss,
But of the ultimate truth, does anyone have any clues.

On my bible there's dust,
Why is confusion a must,
I hope soon, will come, the good news.

This is a wonderful poem in all of its quest for truth and love. The only parts I disagree with are the "we all" parts: not everyone feels this way, some of us are content with the light and love from within.

Faith and life, we all have questions - though some seek and others hide. Your mused words sometimes take on a melodic beat, and the reader draws closer to see if the dust is flying or settling. Good write, keep creating!

David. this is a very well written and poingnant poetic work that explores the questions of faith in our lives in relation to the chaos that thrives all around us. (my interpretation). Searching for answers that never seem to come. Well done.

your interpretation....right on the $!!

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
