Everyone has a story to tell

The time and place the falls from grace.
We all walk at our own pace
forever attempting to win the illusionary race.

So I took the time, to sit and rewind....
granted pause to the cause, reflections of the mind.
Years upon years  slowly drifted on by...
Journeys left behind slumbering alongside the road of unknown,
collecting dirt and debris, anxiously awaiting to be set free
but could not flee...no one to save me and turn the key.

Everything has a time and a place within the enchanted space.
A story to tell of heaven and hell...
Realise this upon states of bliss,
In the beginning we all fell--in the end we all shall fall.
Can no longer ignore the ancient call.
Poem I wrote a few years ago...contemplating life and existence.
Please feel free to comment and provide feedback--always appreciated. :heart:

My apologies for taking so long to respond back.
Thank you for commenting and the "ancient call" is subjective.
Personally, and what I meant when I wrote that, is answering
to a higher power, and answering to our higher selves.

A child with an angel's face walking slowly in place
Barefooted dirty toes holding a candle and a single rose
Walking through beaten paths walking over blades of grass
Eyes blind unable to see could he stumble will he bleed
The coyotes howls the dog barks the willow tree weeps baby chicks go peep, peep
Going hungry for love losing his mind a wingless angel stuck down here with mankind
Sewing thread and a rusty old needle a one eye dog called a beagle
A loaf of bread growing green with mold a broken down dreamers and screaming no
Do all children laugh and play or are they toys just needing to be put away?

"In the beginning we all fell-in the end we all shall fall", i think that stands out the most! But what does that mean?

When we are born we "fall" into life....whatever your beliefs...when we die we fall to our death.
That is my favorite line out of the poem as well...

Cannot be filled only felt.....as all forms of distance are an illusion.

Im being intelligent and serious now....do you like it ?! lol

bahaha!!! You make me laugh (good thing) I guess intelligence and seriousness are good things to dabble in from time to time. =P

I agree with your statement though, a personal favorite quote of mine is, "Reality is a shared Illusion"

Your not serious if you dabble in it lol

Reality is mind based, not heart based...hence the illusion...

But still i guess its all a [link] at the time lol
