Poetries And I

It takes a mind to travel so far
A distance as unlikely to compare
A content to be what you are
What it takes for life, is never fair

The many things I often wonder
I know now the reason why
The lesser things I’m even to bother
For the many poetries and I

And am to dwell a little longer
Less be moments unearned and unworthy
A lesson I am to undertake forever
Much to understand with a mind but barely

A surface to stand and to unearth
Yet I am without tools to progress
Impure with both hate and love
To have found so much yet as less

My mind to always travel so far
Perhaps too distant for my life to flair
Contentment to be who you are
For I have began a life never to compare

    JOEL,, Stopping by to greet you and every other soup poet, with a special thank you comment, during this wonderful Thanksgiving season. Hope you do not mind the time I am taking to express my sincere appreciation for any support you have offered during the years, or time you have been here on the soup. I am deeply thankful and extend to you my best wishes for a happy and healthy Poetic Magical Thanksgiving Day. *Always & Forever, the Poet Destroyer; -*

    This is beautiful Joel! I love the title"poetries and I', it makes perfect sense in a world filled with wonder. And I like the way the theme focuses on life- in life one has to wonder whether he is living the life he aspires to. Very well written poem this!
