I Wonder

I wonder as I wander From head to heart to soul If life is like an empty game Or more, an empty goal If passion is the price we pay For pure and perfect peace If people are the problem Or the path to my release For who I am and what I know Is not what others see When life is like a rocket ship And no one cares but me The path to my salvation Is a long and winding road But I am glad to make it With an extra heavy load The promise of a better life Is part of who I am The lesser peace of harmony Is worthy of a clam The urgency of living Is a worthy fact to face The silence of a shooting star Is harder still to trace The universe is full of those Who buried on the shore Gave deference to those who died By living so much more The story of eternity Is written in your heart The actor that you suffer long Is waiting for a part The soul that you should conquer Is the hardest one to win The restless dream within you Is the place you should begin But when you do remember That discretion is your fame The wiser part of virtue Is the value in your name.

Such a great poem you have written Bryan! While living day-today life we truly wonder and search answers for so many questions that come up! Like you said brilliantly we need to be patient!! "The path to my salvation Is a long and winding road But I am glad to make it With an extra heavy load" Thank you for your wisdom!

Thank you for congrats and that's a hat's to you as well. A lot of pats are more than stats or what's a friend to tell. The stars are bars we keep in jars when we surrender fate. So set them free and let them be your brand new starting gate. Best wishes, Bryan
