Pandora's Box

Countless things change through
life through a series of 
sequences; childhood,
adolescence and adulthood.
One’s life is packed
with inane habits learnt through
puberty; an experience that one
would rather forget.
For a few years one is bombarded
by pain, loss, annoyance, and
stupidity; many seem to be corrupted 
by nature’s mechanisms of growth;
one begins to think they know
everything and thus take obtuse
risks along with making the utmost
ridiculous mistakes.
Nature begins to open Pandora’s
box creating a tidal wave of 
events shaping us all via
pathways jam-packed with
obstacles that one must
conquer to become what nature
intended.

    Your poem is full of emotion and life, well done, now regarding your blog on Writers Block, like you I have been writing since childhood, I have always had my favourite places that have changed along the way, you may laugh but churches inspire me now, the utter silence is the reason, but when I am stressed and depressed or not well, I cannot write, I am blank, I need to find my inner light again~~
