let us worry

let us worry
what has been
burrowed in a furrow
for Time has given us
  much to waste
and needless things
to want


there is much anger to have
  for all the efforts to grasp
what will run
through our fingers
and sink into dearth

searching for a grain of truth
in an oasis we cannot see


our cares call
our labours hinder
our hesitations stunt
our hearts sink
and limbs fail


what soul remains then for the
heaven that we seek?


who knows
what failure remains
what happiness
will miss the
chance of alluding us?

    Exactly! Excellent! So many needless things to be convinced that we want… Grasp at any or all of them; none will last… Blind to the paradise that surrounds us. Very wise poem!

      Thank you Zorgor =) though poetry can be interpreted/resonate in different ways for different people, “blind to the paradise that surrounds us” sums up quite nicely what my original thoughts were.
