Life's Undulations

Poem By Daniel Bates

The undulations of life find me sitting here,
Like hills in the peaks, rolling on until the end.
For now I'm alone, sad and full of un-cheer,
But, a light, my thoughts offer to lend
For I know better times are always near.

A friend I find in poems and ponder
Deep dark thoughts neatly placed to one side,
I know, as it is through willing that is wonder
And this life, a roller coaster of a ride
That dips and dives and casts mists asunder

So enjoy the moments of deep torment
Because it's in experience that greatness is built
And know, deep down, through willings lament
That strength and power, filled to the hilt
Will tide me for life's next great event.

Comments about Life's Undulations

Daniel, a beautiful work I could easily immerse myself in right from the start. Words and phases I could immediately wear on my heart, my soul bathing in its torment. Thank you, Daniel, for a grand effort!

Superficial

What do you want?
WHAT DO YOU WANT?
What do I want?

A Modern Truth

A girl I once knew of beauties born,
But poison was she, and full of scorn.
The heart was right and depth within
But shallowness was all that shone.

Sweet Poetry!

To read a poem bares their soul,
O' love, o' hatred, o'death, o' thought,
It's within the words in which we are taught,
In these readings I become nigh owl.

Soul To Take

Not friends have I, that I can bare my soul
Yet in these words I can allow
Why? Why don't I have people to confide?
I used to, perhaps it's my pride.

Poetic Justice!

What life giveth, can be taken away
Only a strong will can sometimes make stay.
The pleasures you work so hard to acquire,
The good times you have to admire
