Desires ( A Poem By James J )

i stand upon the edge of the earth

looking out upon infinity

my desires are to be free

but a soul bound by desires cannot be free

 

i scream but no sound is heard

for i am a ripple in the strumming of chords

a leaf floating in the winds of time

pushing me towards my destiny

 

beauty surrounds me as i open my eyes

my lungs are filled with the seduction of air

sunlight glimmers off this canvas of land

and spreads over this endless earth

 

beauty is but a flicker in the candle of life

it is eventually extinguished and replaced

darkness uncloaks itself and poses as fear

fear drives us to spill blood for beliefs

 

salvation is preached but not understood

for death does not require salvation

death only requires us in the end

but it is in death that we find beauty

 

the beauty of life is that it does not last forever

immortality would veil us in darkness

for a life lived bound by endless desires

is a life in which we would never be set free
