An Ode to the Journey

Thoughts, dreams, lives- weave and flow
To form this great and endless ocean
Many droning years have we wandered
Like pilgrims its worn and trodden shores
Gazing onward, to the crease of oblivion
Shall our eyes meet, the bridge be built?

We yearn for the coming light,
The flaming gow to heed the swelling tides,
That song and poem of dancing tongues alike
Do bow before this glory still

Let us bathe within the waters of time
And sail, nay, swim, the endless waking seas
Voyage the cosmos, to learn the stories of creation
Catching the most distant drops of rain

Thus may we carry on
Foundations set in stone for eternity
Lonely sands to become the bridge
All to pass, none be left behind.

This poem has an ancient feel about it (and I swear I mean that in the best way possible!). It's a style that most teenagers don't use (even condemn) nowadays, which is unfortunate, as you've shown. I absolutely love this. Would you mind commenting on my forum post, "Alabaster Angels ~ Feedback for Feedback"? Thanks!

I love how you use interesting and maybe a little old fashion words in the story, it gives an ancient sort of feel that i think is really cool. I love the story...really cool!

This poem has a very ethereal feel to it. It reminds me of the pain and monotony that life is. I like how you encourage people to keep on though, to continue moving through life, but the poem could be even better if you described why a person ought to go through life. It is definitely very good though; you have many very interesting words that spice this poem and it was done well.
