EclipseOfTheMoon

From the Pocket of a Dream

*Circus*

Is there any easy way to gain the knowledge
about moving on
in times
when shadows lean against the walls
And why am I
unwilling to learn one thing at a time
not knowing anything about patience
Eagerness consumes the mind
craving for the answer
here and now
What about the fair-play of life
a non-existing friend that dwells only in tales
a friend
unable to give any solace to the dying heart
The sight gets darken
blurred with the thick fog of unexplained pain
The absence of a vision in the horizon keeps telling its story
Life is only a distressing rope walker
above the canyon of fears

      Right. The goal is on the other side of the canyon, don’t look down!

    ” …Life is only a distressing rope walker
    above the canyon of fears.”

    Our fears keep us from so much … if only we can realize and believe, some fears are of our own doing! Freedom of the spirit is looking ahead, and not looking down … great take on the prompt ~becca

    The circus of life.
    I personally believe it is mighty rude of life to thrust upon someone a problem/lesson they could do without.
    It hinders progress.
    Certainly hinders mine. lol
    Great poem here eclipse

    Yes, I also have experienced these feelings in this the school of life; when the lessons taught seem to have no relevance to the life being lived nor to the life to be lived. But how many lessons have we rejected before understanding the words and before comprehending the lessons intent?
