"You don't write because you want to say something, you write because you have something to say." - F. Scott Fitzgerald


Young are those that are bewildered by their being
Great indeed they who wander without want
Greater in fact, a reality wander back
Bewildered by a life in tact
But perhaps the greatest bewilderment of all is looking back to bewild nothing at all

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

It is short and consise yet comprehsive and that is the beautiul thing about this poem of ours, make s one read it twice and then reflect.. Good job... besides poetry is a collection of metric lines with words so arranged that everyone takes a different meaning from them...

Really great poem. It really makes you think, and those are some of the best kind. =)

I was trying to say that it's a good thing to go out and search without a need, but if in fact a sense of purpose - career, calling, realization - is made in the process that is even greater then experiencing "the search".

Great poem. It kind of reminds me of a riddle! The only thing I did not understand was when you said,"Greater in fact a reality wander back". That really didn't make sense to me.
