|You have to keep going Carmen. You have no other choice in life.
If you knew who was walking alongside you every moment of every day, you would never fear or despair again.
It is beautiful to read your poetry again.
God bless and take care

|Bravo! Life is about searching...always searching....why am I here, what is my purpose? But I will make them remember me!

|Carmen, to fill a vast void inside? to battle futility? your poem shows the quint essence of life without ****... you question - as I do - but in the end, there is no answer. I know it helps to be driven by purpose and duty...so as not to think.
Now that's bright, is it?
much love and hugs

|deeply poignant and philosophical, Carmen. Some most wonderful and memorable lines here, in particular:
I am nothing but a cosmic grain
ageing before its birth,
dying earlier than sunrise
you have articulated the results of successful struggle with issues of meaning and futility so well here. You turn your subject matter upside down and bring point and power to expressed questioning of pointlessness. Very well done. TY Kate xx
