Free Verse: Awe!

Free Verse

Awe!

A thought

an idea

is the person I am now

the person you see?

The woman who

struggled

in far away lands

the child that I was

is she still me?

Am I but a

library

of many stories

many chapters

of book

yet to be written

the memories

the history

which needs a voice?

And the narrator

that

trips through my thoughts

is it me

reflecting…

or some

alien entity

that

is

my soul?

And you that once knew me

but never knew me at all

saw but

a parenthesis

of the all

that is this single person

this me.

I think

of all

the

people

who walk this fine planet

all the stories

all the poems

which may never be written

and I stop here in awe!

  1. I hope it doesn’t sound cheesey but, I am in awe of your poetry, dear Bastet. This is is a remarkable poem that sings of a soul’s hardship and determination, a reverie of regret that must be rewarded and be given an audience. There was so much i liked about the poem that I can’t begin to tell you what a heartbreaking delight it was to read, you are a library that I would happily devour, every poem another page of wonder. I am certain many will relate to this, pal. Bless you for sharing and thank you. Please allow me to reblog, hugs from Baldy 🙂
