A Poem To The Unknown Future: by Roland17(m): 9:02am On Dec 04, 2011
[b]Like the strong Gust of the wind,
Sweeping through the roots of the sharp desert sand,
My thoughts drift very far.

Like a hovering dove in the midst of a swampy forest searching for its nest,
My thoughts land,
Safely in the arms of the lucky woman i would be lucky to spend the rest of my life with.

A heart not perfect,
But sweet and compatible enough to call home forever,
She's unknown,
Yet i sense the moment is getting closer as a new day breaths through the lungs of the rose flower.

I imagine what she is like,
What she's doing right now,
Is she aware someone is lost in thoughts about our future?

Despite the excitement and positive anticipation,
I know i must work harder to make her realize we can build a world of our dreams,
A world others would envy like the brightly colored feathers of the peacock.

Endowed with a smile brighter than the sun,
in the same vein i imagine her anger.

Under the pain and weight of our first child, i imagine her resilience to stay strong
I imagine my child's first cry
The first smile my baby brings to this world
I imagine my baby sleeping peacefully in my arms
I imagine my baby's first crawl.

A cherished lady courageous enough to fight for a smile in the face of frowning challenges,
A woman whose cry can change the heart of the Heavens.

To every1 out there searching for love, do not burden ur mind with worry and sorrow.

Listen to the cries of the warning sparrow
A troubled mind is like a wheel-barrow
All it carries is nothing but sorrow
It weighs you down when you seek to travel solo
Like quick-sand, the more you panic the more it swallows

A troubled mind has no marrow
All the worries have made it hollow
Painful mysteries line up its tomorrow
Sharp pains from its most poisoned arrow
Like the fear of a woman who walks the gallows

A troubled mind is like a dragon’s kiss
So much fire waiting to release
With one breath it can all go amiss
Not a chance to ever find peace
Tread softly or damage the Golden Fleece

For when life brings you sorrow
The waters ahead look dirty and shallow
And the road looks crooked and narrow
Alas there’s no need to wallow
For Dawn approaches with a charming fellow
To bring good news of good times that follow
To rescue you like Moses from a Pharaoh

I pray to God that you all may never tire
Like the piercing notes of his church’s choir
he will bless and take you higher
Faith and trust is all He requires
Even if it goes down to the wire
