The Order of Things Unseen

Behind the veil

Something is hidden beyond your reach

To describe it would be such a tale

Strangeness of your thoughts forever beseeched

Telling you the story of what could be

Hidden behind your mind’s smokescreen

So outlandish to one who would see

Because it’s still left to the order of things unseen

Leaving you to ever ponder what your mind has imagined

Sitting behind that veil

Captivating Confines

Lost in a world of make believe

A mind of wonder and illusion

Places we have yet to perceive

Hides his wonders in seclusion

 

Amazing creatures of every kind

Colors that dazzle the eye

Things you would never find

Maybe they have them in Shanghai

 

His mind delves in to the unknown

Worlds of undiscovered amazement

Often it seems like a danger zone

Such an anticipated engagement

 

Such a place of fascination

All wrapped up within his mind

Written in his narration

Within the walls of his captivating confines

Old Soldier

soldiers-856034_960_720

When do you realize it is time to settle

Taking your foot off the peddle

Deciding that it’s time to step back

When you are young you look forward to what comes next

Always pushing yourself to reach a higher level

Moving on from one opportunity to another

When is it time to realize those opportunities are dwindling

Time waits for no man they say

So when will I know that day

Taking that one last attempt

To continue a career that you love

So much says it is time to quit

Enjoy what you have done and stop doing it

Move onto the next stage of your life

Your body is full of aches and pains

Mind not as sharp, but still there most of the time

I am a soldier that is what I have known for over twenty-one years

Not done in my heart or in my head

A few good years left inside this old soul

Proving again to myself of my worth

What happens to old soldiers when it is time to go

As it was once said

Old soldiers never die, they just fade away

Rambling

Thoughts lost in nothingness

My mind is blank

Words absent from my fingers

Meandering images float through my head

Closing my eyes

Nothing comes in view

Just blurry views of moving forms

Unable to concentrate to bring them into focus

Straining my mind to get a glimpse

Oblivion is all I can ponder

So I end this time

Of rambling thoughts that take me back to……
