Human Endeavor

Standard

Aren’t we bound with fascination

To our world

Full of form and motion,

Full of color and sound.

For us, it’s our gathered body

Of knowledge

In which we choose to put creativity

To capture what holds in infinity

Of thoughts and ideas,

Even the same ones can always be new,

In so many ways

Linear

Standard

Elusive as conceiving creation

The nothing that all things are

Nothing

We wish to believe,

Does not simply disappear

 

Things do leave an impression

(Or so we hope)

Brief, longer, or seemingly eternal

By their necessity of being and ending

They leave their mark

In the shape of those replacing

 

And even if it’s not in the way of memory

As we have it – it once has been,

There was something that came before

And there will be what comes after

You fell for me

Standard

You said anything could be won through a smile –

So many times you brought it out of me,

In spite of myself

 

We’ve known each other for some time,

And only now have I realized,

You’re the one won over –

Did you know?

Maybe this is what you wanted

In spite of yourself

No Fullfilment

Standard

Too much passion

And too many passions,

This is what my tired body says

To my mind,

But what do I do, there’s no doubt –

I know I burn myself out,

Though in the process I shine,

Nobody seems to care

 

Time,

And time again

Reminds me there’s no competing

With death,

Maybe –

My beating heart would stop,

When I find love and love finds me
