I've Searched

Posted by MFishProfile 07/18/21 at 10:38PM Other See more by MFish

I have searched the World over,
from near, far and wide,
searching for my partner,
who rode by my side.
A companion I loved
and defended at any cost,
until the most saddest of days,
when it was her life I lost.
I searched every cranny and flags unfurled,
in search of my love, a beautiful girl.
Thinking I had found her, a short while.
To me this person; It was there,
an instant awareness; I knew it was her.

The grandest of plan,
at least it was then.
The grandest of plan
ever devised by a man.
It was a great plan
and it would soon be,
one, which changed the Worlds view
of our Nations' history.
What happened on the night,
caused stress in our land
A military, watchful life,
away from here now.
Move quickly or I fear,
you no longer will
be with us the following year.

Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862).  American naturalist, philosopher, poet, and essayist. He is best known for his book "Walden" or "Life in the woods", a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings, and his essay "Civil Disobedience" (originally published as "Resistance to Civil Government"), an argument for disobedience to an unjust state.

It Sat Alone

It sat alone,
within a box;
on a small
piece of cloth.
The brown eyes,
a black nose,
whimpering sound
of warm delight.
A new puppy
warms the night.
The old memories
crowd the mind.
Comes the sigh
of thinking back,
your first puppy,
white and black.
A different color,
then your neighbors;
still a dog.
Why cant we
do the same
with our humanity?

Weep For Me

Weep for me the Giant said.
Weep for me, though I'm not dead.
Weep for those, who's lives were lost.
Weep for those, not the cost
of moving quickly on lives which matter,
using many words; just idle chatter.
No thought to give for large or small,
treat them kindly; treat them all.
