blueIf songs of old,
our futures told,
would all our dreams be dying?

Would in the mist,
our lovers kissed,
we only be goodbying? . . .

Would there in space,
be time and place,
for fighting and for flying? . . .

Or would it be,
on easy sea,
that all we are is sighing?

If ancient lore
and tales of yore
would tell me where I’m going —

I’d tell them back
to hold their flack:
This girl will keep on flowing.

For dreams of old
our futures hold,
what ever keeps us growing.

a friend, you see,
and far better than knowing.

  1. Nice to see some poetry again Jess. By the way, I absolutely loved the posts about your fall. You of course understand that I mean the way you described it all and not the fact that it happened to you.

    I’m glad that you re-blogged them all as otherwise I probably would never have got round to reading them. Hope you’re well.

    • Great to hear from you, Sean! Glad you liked the poem and the posts about my fall. Thank you for reading them! They’re a bit lengthier than what I usually write… And I *am* well. Thanks for asking! I hope the same for you!

    • Thank you, Andrea! I really enjoyed creating this one. Probably one of my favorite poems so far. Hope you’re well! Sorry I haven’t been keeping up with your posts, lately! I really liked Macau, too! :)

  2. Love it! Great poem again, Jess. Uncertainty…something we’re currently both familiar with ;) Uncertainty is scary, but at the same time it’s very liberating if we look at it from certain perspectives. Either we embrace it or we don’t. I don’t think we have much of a choice :D

    • “Uncertainty is scary, but at the same time it’s very liberating if we look at it from certain perspectives.” You nailed it, Mabel. I’m so glad you agree, and you’re right — we really don’t have much of a choice, so we might as well try and see it in a positive and motivating light! :)
