To have cared and loved it all.

by Nadia Selmann Casia   Aug 31, 2015

I will never let temptations
be dictating, how patience should burst
I will not live with limitations
and feel the desperation
creak in the corner of my mind
I will not be afraid of separation
and the thought of loosing those I love
in liberation, I will live in the now
with all my senses open
I will feel every situation
I will feel the heat from my heart
without swelling in it, for too long
I will first die, when I realize
that my inner light
has burned completely out
I know I don't get to decide
But I hope, I'll be 100, lying in my bed
feeling love, like I never felt it before.
without the need, to crave for more
to have cared, and loved it all

    Oh the title and the poem bond.

    Such persistence, strength, determination, hope and Will.

    Fond of the repetition of I will, in some cases it might through the reader off, but I really felt the will in your repetition.
    The determination is crystal clear.

    This poem is inspiring and easy for general readers to relate, and for target readers to be touched.

    Well done and thanks for sharing.

    This poem has a positive tone and while reading it
    I also got a sense of enlightenment on behalf of
    the poet. A feeling that this has been experienced
    and life's lesson has been tasted. This ending:

    without the need, to crave for more
    to have cared, and loved it all

    ^^I simply like this closing. This is what living life
    to its maximum and taking the step of going through
    it rather then stepping back means. A sense of fulfillment arises when we don't have to crave
    and yearn for things. A sigh filled with peace allows
    us to depart this world with a smile.

    An inspirational write to grab life by its reins and
    ride it! Well done and welcome to the site!
