Burning Up.

We’re running in a circle,
Faster and faster,
Losing a little each day,
And we burn.

We’re chasing our own tails,
Unaware of the price paid,
We forget a little each day,
And we burn.

We’re handing out our souls,
To earn our pound of flesh,
Playing with fire each day,
So we burn.

Where do we really want to go,
What are we really trying to get,
We’re lost in so many questions,
Elusive are the answers, so we burn.

We say this is the way of life,
But is it really what we’re living for?
We stumble at the hint of honesty,
And we burn.

Restless and tired on the inside,
Confident and Β alive on the outside,
We tire ourselves with the charades,
Set ourselves on fire, and burn.

How alive are we when we forget to live,
Wound up in our petty lives,
Running these mad races,
Isn’t enough of us already burnt?

Do we remember the last time,
When we looked up at the sky,
Soaked in the sun, sand and sea,
Enjoyed the tingling of the sun’s burn?

  1. Your voice is an enchanting illuminating beauty of heavenly wisdom, it shakes the spirit from the mind deep past the heart into the soul…one would be wise to embrace the golden message in the words that God has blessed you to share. Always your brother and much love to you my sister…it is so very inspiring. ‘Your heart is truly filled with the fire that burns deep in your soul’, the first line from my poem ‘The Fire’.

    • Thanks for all the support Wendell πŸ™‚ I feel the same way about your work… It comes from deep within a very humane man’s heart. So proud to have a friend like you πŸ™‚
