Concoction

life
the tortuous river
through time
it flows, permeates
the swamps of humanity
with all their colors
and worries and lies
with all their happiness
and sins and fantasies

life
as graceful as the fireflies
the matters of existence flies
jumps out of humanities soup
trying to reach new heights
like the yellow flower against a blue sky
contrasting feelings for the sake of dying

life
takes whichever path
it fills whichever desires
it pretends whichever care
that the heart can afford
for the mingling mixing human
forms in the intoxicating
concoction of dreams

life
towards no end
from no beginning
it hopes for nothing
but another soul
for that it can sometimes
be desperately lonely
even when in the crowded
magnitude of humanity

Very deep for such a young man. Life is an ever unwinding road. :)
This is wonderful. There is something that is sad, desolate almost and then out of the depths falls the other shoe or redemption. Lovely.

Hi Ghost Particle, not only that
have you noticed that at a flick of a switch we can tune in to just about anything on tv or the Internet, and at our finger tips we can zoom in for satellite image close-ups on Earth, or soon google-like star births ... and yet with these demi-god like abilities we are still unfulfilled, we seem powerless? to deal with pain, human ailments or disease.
Maybe we should be enjoying what we have, and looking for fulfillment in other ways - like helping educate other people set in their rigid ways. Maybe the journey is where it IS at, the destination just a stop or minor goal along the way.

- i loved this a lot ... in every sense of the term is so personal but so universal as well

- why do i have a feeling only I am not alone

It's so well written. It reminds me of the feeling I got as I was reading, Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
