VITAL QUESTIONS

To wait, or not to wait,
that is the question,
the burning question that we face:
is  n o w  too early, or too late?

And must our choice depend on
our shaky definitions of love and pride,
or on God's laws, that have been there,
and will be there forever?

Can real love be born from lucky breaks,
or random strokes of an indifferent fate?
Or should we let God's guidance system
lead us to lifelong love and happiness?

very insightful!  I love to ask questions in my poetry, even when I don't expect answers.

Thank you for that compliment, Meredith.
Yours was the only response I received to this poem. You said exactly what I was thinking when I posted it, yet I did.
It's sad to come to the conclusion that most of our friends on this forum either do not agree, or do not understand, or are afraid to express their opinion about the subject of my poem...

Ahh these are great questions Willem. I do not have the answers but I know I always look before I leep. There was a time I thought I had followed the right path and the signs of this were there. God had shown me I have made the decision he wanted me to. Sadly it turned out to be not as happy as I had imagined but I still believe this road was the one I was meant to travel. The entire plan has not yet been shown to me.

Well done with this piece. I am sorry if I missed it earlier.

I don't think you can go wrong with God guiding you, that's for sure!  Wonderful poem, Willem!

Yes, great rhetorical piece, Willem. How, indeed, to diferentiate between what could possibly come of fate and what could be orchestrated by God, or could one be the other?   Liked this, and its questions...thanks for sharing it here.

To all my dear friends on this forum who took the time and trouble to read and evaluate my "Vital Questions":  I wish to take back the remarks I made in an earlier response to Meredith (LyricFetish) and I apologize for those premature remarks!
What you all wrote restored my appreciation for the community spirit in our forum.

Willem
