    -- Poetry Time

    The thread frenchy started is really nice but this will get lost in it. Some of the quotes people posted in there were downright beautiful but some, like the Elio poem, made me wonder if we're not just glorifying a namebrand, like the hideous art of that nutjob, Van Goe . To prove it here's a poem I wrote in roughly 15 minutes. Keep in mind I'm not a writer or a poet and this is actually the first poem I ever wrote - not counting any poetry I had to write in school since I can't even remember what I wrote (I wasn't paying attention).

    But this poem does have a message and a meaning so I'm curious if that comes across, if anyone can understand what I'm trying to say.

    Enjoy - and post your own if you got it or just write one up. Should be interesting.

    Waking Eve

    Eyes wide open mind shut tight
    We sit and ponder the plot of life
    To be, To do - conflicting plight
    What is the meaning - all the strife?

    Our goals, our hopes - fading with time
    As we become one like the rest
    The child is gone - innocent crime
    The hands of time unravels the mind

    One day I wake to the sound of lies
    What once was wrong is now my life
    The wicked strive on words of bias
    Devouring the souls of mindless cowards

    We weep, we cry - downward we fall
    Dreams forgotten, lives in a crawl
    For once we taste the bitter sweet
    Our hearts entomb, full of deceit

    But far away what once was ours
    A figment of everlasting life
    Chasing a dream which cannot be gotten
    Just like the truth once it's forgotten

    The end is near, our fate is sealed
    Of our own device, diluted souls deplete
    The only life out of this Death
    Lies deep beneath - with worms and fear

    The fate for evil once waked, too clear
    The path to death is oh so near
    But hope resides within us all
    For the pure of heart will hear the call
