Wonders Of Life

No long-winded intro to this one. Happy Columbus day to all of my U.S. readers and wishes for a great and safe weekend for everyone.



Who was I really?

Who was I really?

Wonders Of Life

I wonder on so many things

of life and what’s to be

and I wonder if I’ll realize

the purpose that is me.

I wonder if, when all is done

and my spirit is set free

I’ll understand then, after all

the wonder that was me?

    I have been pondering this lately too, Jake, and have a poem half done. Nice one!

    • Keep at it Denise, it’ll come. I have just finished Heaven’s Wishin’ Well, which begins with a bit of wondering as well. Thanks for the like and the comment, I really appreciate you taking the time.
