Learning and understanding your place in the world...

Keen Understanding

© Jaimey Perham 05/15/2012

 

Trying to learn the nature of things that enter my head

Get back to my youth when emotions had meaning that were said

Feels like I am walking on the moon drowning in a sea of red

The days are getting shorter and the teacher is dead

 

Have a keen understanding of myself in this world today

Lately I spend my hours crying and I try to find a god to pray

Purge this evil from my body and my brain of decay

But my soul is experienced and my heart is warm as a solar ray

 

Time to turn off the television people and let the music speak

Unplug from the internet for a while and talk cheek to cheek

Walk in the forest of trees and sit on a rock near a creak

The human spirit together is very strong, but alone very weak

 

Sometimes words have meaning and other times just fill the time

Ain’t it funny how they sink in and seem important when they rhyme?

Life really is an amazing adventure folks and to love is no crime

My stories always seem to take shape and become their own on a dime

 

To write is to write no matter what is told

A poets dream no matter how old

Listen to yourself and let the rest unfold

Don’t hold back the pain, or fear the cold

 

So I look out my window and I see more rain

This time however I smile and feel no pain

I am not empty or numb either just a shade of the same

Balance, happy, sad, good, bad, and no one to blame

 

Had a keen understanding today that came out of the blue

And you know what as usual I could thank you

But maybe it was me this time that stirred the human stew

It just feels nice to once again feel new…

You cover a lot of ground with this piece but it comes together quite nicely. It rocks me gently down by the creek. While I sit on the porch and listen to the rocking chair creak. ;-)

Love the openness and honesty present.

You capture too well how easily the human race has become pawns to the jurisdiction of technology and few except the very young or the very old are immune to it. I recently posted a story about my observances of people at a local coffee shop and yes I actually saw teens texting each other from across the table...sad
