Purgatorial Incarceration

Burdened by a rail of hopes,
and countless dreams of morality-
mankind lies buried,
beneath a divagation of timeless mis-conceptions.

What can and cannot be.
We are hindered,
impededed by the fear-
of our own imaginations.

Prone to push our limits,
yet doomed never to succeed.

And yet we can

-BELIEVE-

that across the threshold of the unknown,
lies true understanding
-of the past that is our future-
-and the tomorrow that is our destiny-

For splashed across the realms,
of endless possibilities,
-lay the precepts of immortality.

------------------
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll be among the stars.
-Unknown-

Very good, Christopher. I think you could add another word to the formula too - HOPE. Nice work.

Love these lines:

"of the past that is our future
and the tomorrow that is our destiny"

Great!

Thank you much ms deVine... You must've dug deep to dredge this up, it's a whole...eight days old (in here, that can be eternity!)

One thing I notice about your poetry is your use of words that are very effective in setting the mood you want to portray....great job here - I could feel your emotions....? (Or ideas?)
