Our life: The jumping out of a plane resembles Right Into the arms of gravity’s demands That anxiously pulls him onto the ground As his prevailing destiny commands. No parachute on his back is to be found For him to avoid the inevitable impact So he must soon find a way to escape Before all his hopes are really whacked. Between the plane and the ground though A distance, short or long, to cover must have That definitely indicates the length of his life That no one, certainly, has the right to halve. The drama of Man has though just started As he has no command over his will But the glory of his indubitable spirit It makes him stand up and never kneel. He laughs at his own condemnation And proudly declares: " I am here to live." I do not care when my fall is over Fear in my heart " I'll never forgive." He begins enjoying his hastening falling As he makes plans myriad dreams to fulfill "My works," With all his force, triumphantly shouts: "Even when I go, here they are going to be still." Thus Man victorious of life’s adventure emerges Having beaten all odds and the fear of death A monument is now of wisdom and valor For he never gives up, till his very last breath! © Demetrios Trifiatis 16 October 2022

A verse of wisdom Demetrios, life owes you nothing so you must seize every opportunity that comes you're way. We have one life, it's not a rehearsal, we have to live it. Hope your weekend is going well. Tom

Enjoyed the spectacle in the sky, my friend Demetrios! Your fantastic visuals, along with your one-of-a-kind language, sent a layer of beauty down from the skies above. An excellent concept in the last stanza. The core of what you say in your poetry resonates with me.

You are so right, my dearest friend, Vijay. This is not a poem of poetic beauty but it is a poem of essence with which I wanted to pass a message of courage and determination that we have to adopt for to make sense of our passing through life! Thank you for your visit and comment. God bless you!
