Ties to life
Anxiety growing deeply,
Within the womb of the lost.
However attempt to evolve,
From one's own past it is to behold.
Harboring regrets of things,
That could have been and lived.
gestures never taken upon,
Unless needed to survive.
Forgetful thoughts relentless,
Among the possibilities that exist,
Hope misinterpreted by the many,
Shrouded in the deepest of mystery.
Taking a step towards inner joys,
Towards true accomplishments.
Flourishing like a flower,
As if it had finally come out of winter.
Steping stones of souls and minds,
Leaving little room to discover success,
Life goes forward always,
Time permits to confront and adapt.
No true path leads to success,
Holding no ground to what you truly desire.
Only resolve and perseverance combined,
Hold the key to permeate these goals.
If one can find motivation,
In the designs of their actions.
Then and only then shall life permit,
To forsee your passions and dreams.

Oooooohhh.... This was one of those poems that I just felt I was meant to read. You ever feel like that? Like a song plays on the radio just for you?... Or a T.V. show comes on and touches on the very topic that coincides with the issue you've been contemplating?
Well that was what this poem was for me. I can't tell you how much I've been battleing with the issues of my life journey. The stubborness of my bad habbits. My inability to let go of my regrets completely. I make progress.... I really do... But only in small increments. And only in one or two facets of life. It seems the things I want to improve the most, are the same things that I feel powerless over.
Ah, but enough about me... I suppose I don't need to tell you this was thought prevoking...

I'm glad my poems still strike the mind of a few. Not many people seem to comment my poems when I randomly post them here. I guess it might be because I don't comment on other people's poems that often, but I still do from time to time. I'll probably have more on inner workings pretty soon as I'm starting to work again soon ;)
