Poetry of old

“Poetry often belies the age of the poet,

but always reveals the struggles of the soul.

What we write of youth, applies to old.

But most would rather resist it,

Than bear the truth be told.

I’m in love with life.

But I hate the world.”

It’s possible to live life romantically, you know. Despite the horrors and pain that appear to be so pervasive in this world, perhaps romance is the ultimate rebellion against the cruelty of life.

Perhaps.

This is something that I wrote a few years ago, it still accurately describes my conflicted relationship with this world.

What you take from this, be it pessimistic, optimistic, or simply cynical, is a reflection of who you are and what your current relationship is with your world.

Yet, most will read into this what they believe to be true about me, not realising that what we see in others is a reflection of what we are hopeful, grateful, or bitter about in that moment.

How connected are you with your relationship with the world around you?
