The Thinking Man

by Nick who Plays Pool   Oct 6, 2006


Oh thinking man, what do you think
Sitting upon your pedestal, with your fist to your chin
In that mind that never ceases, so complex it is
What could you think, what do you think.

Do you think of memories, days gone by
People you know, places you've been
Do you think of life, thinking of it's flaws
Could you just be thinking, thinking of things that come to mind.

Do you think of nature, its soft sounds and beauty
Do you think of life, how it came and how it will go
Do you think of love, it's warming touch to one's heart
Or do you think, of yourself as time goes by for eternity.

    It was so real and touching...you explained the images of life so well my lil bro
    And you write further away from your age..And it's so cool
    I was writing 'Roses are red....' kind of things when I was at your age :)
    Keep it up,

    A complicated poem... The punctuation is off. Where some periods are there should be question marks, etc... I am not really sure If I quite found a flow in this poem... although I know that there must be one. I must reread this poem. I'm still trying to figure out what the meaning is.

    Overall, the meaning was well put, and although the overall meaning was cliche, the way you put it into words WAS unique.

    Well written,
    5/5
