Young Man

Vintage Words


Stop worrying the future

like a clock that will not tick

fast or tock the way you



Experience is wanting

and worry can not help

any venture excel absent

appropriate skills when

he wants to excel but 

is forced to angle toward

dreamless walks.


Wish and will away. Stumble

head long into the map of a fate

not yours. Yes, that is your muse

whispering a rather different 

destination from your shoulder.

"when he

wants to excel but

toward the dreamless




Great line..

Loved it.

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Yes Respected Mm Allets I fully agree with nightlight

Yes Respected Mm Allets I fully agree with nightlight... forced to angle because "karma" is not poetry writing. There is no "dream" of "goal" in "karma" BTW Karma helps demolish all walls within the ignorant mind. ~~ a~dabbler~in~the~alphabets
