Contemplation

Ever stop and wonder

who you really are

Why you eat or work

or even drive a car

 

Ever stop and think

there must be more to life

More than being a friend,

a parent, husband or wife

 

Ever stop to ponder

perhaps you need a change

Something far away,

different, somehow strange

 

Ever stop to contemplate

leaving everything behind

Maybe if you leave

what you're missing

you will find

 

Maybe I sound old

Well, I'm not what I appear

Sitting all alone

from my eyes I shed a tear

◄ I Love You

Very moving Jane.
I am sure we all feel this way at times, ask ourselves questions.
Beautifully expressed.

A theme which connects in content and style. But...
Maybe I'd be keener
If I KNEW the grass was greener!

Jane, you're right...I need a change, I need to break out of this rut I'm in, I need to be my own man. I'll speak to the wife.

Jane,

This poem will give many of us a lot to think about as it applies to nearly all of us in one way or another. You have a written a poem where heart and mined are entwined which has a beauty of its own.

Thank you for this,
Keith
