I Await the Call
MY DAY'S LONG AND ARDUOUS JOURNEY winds down.
Infinite night gracefully descends and takes me into her
I have no reason to fear the inevitable,
That transition into a higher and
More glorious state
Than allowed me upon this
Beautiful but angst-filled
I rejoice in what has been
Prepared from early on.
I await the call . . .
Wow, good writing. Did you write this yourself?
Will you post some more tomorrow?
Thank you, wifibandit, for your question.
Yes, that is mine, I'll post more soon.
I appreciate your thoughts very much.
I am going home, yet not without sorrow;
for too long have I been adrift.
There was no place to call my own nor
anyone to take me in.
The price I paid for careless days of youth
spent has been far too dear.
I look upward to a welcoming sky that beckons,
reassuring that, soon, this
wanderer shall be home, in the warm and loving
embrace of the cosmos . . .
The time approaches; the sound of the rapids are no longer distant.
We mend fences and batten down the hatches, steeling ourselves for the inevitable.
Though billions have gone ahead of us, are WE ever ready?
This not normally my style, but I will give it a go:
Night may have fallen but tomorrow is a new day
What might I face next; who can say
Will my future be short or long; I do not know
What will I do? Where will I go?
I am bound to face trials and tragedies along the way
I might get knocked down, but I won't fade away
I am going to use my time; so much more to do and see
Whatever happens, my ethics and pride will always remain within me.
Much love and appreciation to both CoCo and Sheps.
As we await the call we laugh we are like april the giraffe
Are millions staring at our cage our lives performed upon a stage
Like April we don't have a clue we search the cage for what is true
Our lives are timed and then it's done It doesn't feel like that much fun
But as she paces through her pain and munches on her tasty grain
We watch her as she tries to birth that's how it is here on the earth
April's babe/calf is taking its own sweet time.
It's funny that millions are tuned in and she's become the most famous giraffe on the planet.
She looks like she's ready i hope it's a girl.
