A wandering soul in search of ........

by A lonely soul   Jan 19, 2011

I am just a pilgrim
with a burning desire
to explore what brings joy
and sorrow to others
near and dear and not so near
with my own heart and soul
To see, touch and feel
all that is wonderful
and all that causes pain
The path to my enlightenment
will not be found in a day
and certainly not until I have seen or felt
someone else's pain or joy
as if it were my own
There is so much to learn and discover
from people young and old
of what gives them pleasure and pain
or what I should truly feel
when I see them laugh or cry
before I can find a place
for my wandering soul to rest

    I had to read this twice it was so deep

    near and dear and not so near
    with my own heart and soul
    It may not take from it to put "yet" were the second and is but if it were just me I would not be bothered but many critics count off for three and's in two lines and dislike the word "and" almost as much as the The poem is excellent as far as I am concerned

    When we got through and experience every aspect and emotions of life, that is when we have truly lived and learned to be a human...this write needs to be read by many, many others. Really liked this and the honesty behind it :)

    I really think you have done an excellent job with this piece. The use of the slight details and all the description of who you are is amazing. They way you used each simple word showed your "true" voice in this piece. There are hints of emotion in this piece, but they aren't too subtle, or too bold either, so that helps this piece a lot. There is a nice flow. Overall this piece is terrific.

    I love your openness and gentle soul that seems to be. A poet with the heart of one.
