What's It All About?

Poem By Linda Ori

I don't understand it,
This life that I chose -
I ask, 'What's my purpose? '
But nobody knows,
Stumbling blindly
In search of the light,
I'd just like to know
If my choices are right;
I dwell in confusion,
Thoughts spinning around,
No sense of direction,
No truth to be found;
Is it all about karma?
For the good of mankind -
If I give unto others,
True blessings I'll find?
So who dishes karma
And what is their game?
Is it logged in some ledger
Embossed with my name?
My good deeds, my bad deeds
The laughter I bring,
The tears of resentment
That well up and sting?
Some day when I'm older
And wise for my years,
Perhaps understanding
Will make it all clear,
'Til then I'll just blunder
My way through the mire,
And hope for the guidance
Of Someone up higher.

' Is It Ever Too Late?

What is it about society
That resents authority?
There needs to be structure
Or chaos would rule;

' Senseless

Senseless...................
Brothers lost -
Cut down in their prime;

' Understand

There are consequences to everything
Intentions have their purpose -
So don't deny
Or justify -

' Revelation

You alone reveal my soul,
The intimacy of my deepest thoughts
Wrapped around each emotion,
Each beat of my heart;

' Missing You

Why is the emptiness so cold?
Is it because I'm growing old?
The fire glows in the distance,
Too far away to comfort these old bones;

' One Bright Star

One bright star in the vast unknown
A blazing ember in the night sky shone
Reminding me that I'm not alone...............
One bright star;
