Hi Zuzanna, thanks for your comments as always, this is a lovely prayer or poem, whatever you want it to be!
I always think its better to write your own prayers as it means more to the writer, whoever or whatever their God is, thanks Jeff

Brilliant! .... It does make you wonder how far they will go eventually. Perhaps the banninig of rings on fingers. Those big sparklers don't half do some damage, possibly more so than a knuckle duster. Carrying pens in public should be banned as well. Vicious pointy objects you could stab someone with. Walking sticks! ... you could club someone to death with one of those! The world is going mad... has gone mad. Great poem thanks for making me consider other weapons and giving me a reason to ramble on.

Thanks Daniel. Sorry for adding to your pain by writing about it! The idea came from a silly season story about frequently told lies. It said
"The favourite fib told by women was "Of course you don't look fat" with "These shoes were only £10" in second place".
I also thought it would be interesting to write about a love you didn't regret losing.
Thanks for the encouragement

Hi Mark, I've got one of those! One dress costing more than my entire wardrobe. One haircut costing the same as mine for a year. Shoes ... she compalins when the soles in mine have hole in them and sends them to be repaired. Most of hers are hardly scuffed and one the cost of a single pair would put 4 sets of leather on my feet. Heck I really feel this one. Possibly more so at the moment. Good write.

HI Zuzanna, I love the poem/prayer! I have many favorites from the bible. "all fall short of the glory of God" is probably one of the best. When others judge others, or if I fall into that, I remember that line.It seems it is time for many to fall into Gods arms and ask for help and guidance, and do the reading and try to be good! love it and take care my friend

Thank you Janet ... peace and light to you. Of course I will accept the healing energy and then send you back twice as much again, because that's how it works. Sending more than we receive.
Thu 17th Jul 2008 13:48
Thanks for your compliment on my work. Of course you may say so.
As for "the end of the world thing." Although it makes for great debate. I'm not getting into it through this comments section.
I still think it's rubbish. It's the end of the world every day for somebody or other.
Thu 17th Jul 2008 13:42
Yes Daniel. Even then! If not more so!
Inner strength shows through in us at the worst of times. We must draw on those inner strengths to get through them.
Picture the outcome as good and ultimately it will turn out well. Positive thought, positive outcome.
I'm mentally gonna send you the positive chi. and healing energy. Believe it works and it will.xx

Thu 17th Jul 2008 13:22
Dear Zuzanna, ALL of your poetry is extremely spiritual as are your comments to all others blogs and profiles.
For me, your spirituality shines through in your words of wisdom, peace and humility. Also your words are heartfelt and sincere. You are so very kind.
"God is a word we use to identify you."
This one line from your beautiful poem says it all. Repentance, as well as forgiveness comes from within.
When we forgive ourselves, we are more easily able to forgive others and help them to forgive themselves. Continuous existence in love, light and peace to all men. ( and women of course.)
Lots of love to you, Janet.xxx

Weird things sonnets ... I'm trying to work out if your is Italian, Elizabethan or Spenserian. I think it might be Antonionian.
Sometimes you just have to write.
Thu 17th Jul 2008 10:26
No comment is needed Zuzanna, you already feel it in your heart because you put it in words.
Thu 17th Jul 2008 10:24
Janet ... even when the light is a false hope and is really an oncoming train?
Antonionionionionioni ... certainly was when I wrote it.
My back is on the mend. I still have a hiddeous flu bug in my head and chest but I'm soldiering on. Wife and kids have been away for a week, so all is quiet on that front.
Thu 17th Jul 2008 10:18
It's always great to get something out of nothing, especially if it is structured. Kind of stream of consciousness stuff. Well done.

This is not to scare anyone it is in a Bible and also the Mayas prediction for that particular year. There has been estimated that the Earth is shifting on its axle so the sun may enter into the Milky Way and that has been found by many physicist including Einstein...All based on the science, will live and see...Olympics!!
I love to see that as well. Olympics are my favourite aside the Manchester Football Team, love those footballers.

i think poetry as all art is useful and important in a private way most of all, it's most useful in informing life choices but as for something more collective? one famous poet's quote was that not one single poem saved a single person from the gas chambers, and i agree but i wouldn't go as far as to take oscar wilde's tongue in cheek comment that all art is quite useless completely seriously, but to be honest i think in many ways a small part of that sentiment rings true

Janet, thank you for your lovely comment, and the simple answer is, I don't really keep up with them all, their names just seem to remain like faint memories of times I'd like to remember.
And Jeff, the 'Bench in Levenshulme' is probably not as exciting as you think!

Hi Pete, this reminds me of when a good friend of mine was depressed. She went to docs, i read that little tiny piece of paper with the tiniest writing about the side effects out to her.
As your prose shows, she'd thrown it in the bin.
My friend is an eternal pessimist and was sure to suffer every single side effect there was.
Happily, she tried what i suggested she do with the pills and we got through it together.
Love the depth and truths in this. love Janet.xx

What i'd like to know is how the hell you manage to keep up with 60 people on your contacts list.
Great descriptions though. It's made me want to do somat similar with those with the same name. (whose surnames i don't know.)
Great idea. i like this one. Janet.x
Wed 16th Jul 2008 11:36
You have such a way with words Antonionioni.
"The end of the world is nigh." and all that rubbish. Put there to scare the living daylights out of us poor folk.
The lava i "saw" was very cleansing. Certainly nothing injured, maimed or murdered.
Your sonnet certainly kicked us in the imagination, that's for sure. That surely can only be a good thing?
lots o love and vivid imagination. Janet.xx
Wed 16th Jul 2008 11:13
Welcome back Daniel. I hope things are better for you now.
Your poem is lovely. Shows that even in the tough times, there is a light at the end of our tunnels. That deep exhaling breath is kind of a relief as we see a way forward. Yet we know there's still a fair way to go.
I wish you well. love Janet.xx

Enjoyed this one Pete. love Janet.x

The poem is beautifully written and to the point with the right feelings and emotions if comes to getting younger (refuse to use the word ‘older’)
It is a little sad thinking of missing the youth age, but there is no clock to stop the time.
Beautiful poem with the "phantom lover at the end brought a smile to my face."

You have been reading about the Final days in the Year 2012 or what? -- Smile.
There are predictions of the End of times and that picture I had in mind reading your poem. Well done with a Religious twist to it as well as the picture of Naples.
Magnificent Vesuvius with lava is bad for those who live near.
I like this poem...Very creative!
Wed 16th Jul 2008 04:40
The poem is well written - It could be interpreted as a nightmare. It could be a real life event. The write is thought provoking and has deep psychological base. There is s quote - " One shall never go to bed with out of reconcile with another because one my never have another chance to see that person again - life happens"
I believe in kindness and not angry feelings in every day of life so if I die will have no regrets. This attitude works for me. It is easier to live with a smile on my face.
Thank you for sharing your feelings
In this poem...Great job!

Hi Pete, gripping stuff, yet sad reality and vividly described. I read somewhere that in the USA 13 billion prescriptions are issued each year, thats an average of one a week for every person in the country.
Frightening, but you've given an insight to it with this. I believe getting off them is worse than illegal drugs or alcohol, must be an absolute nightmare, well written Jeff
