I stood in line
A decade or so
I realized
That now was time to go!
The bellman called
Out my number & name
& Whispered that
Life as I know it would
Never be the same.
He was speaking in gibberish
As I signed on the line
Telling me that I am the one
Who decides on the time?
The time of my stay &
And the way I will leave
the time of the day
when I finally believe!
BELIEVE
in the storms & the clouds
& the energy from there,
I will decide on who goes
& who stays near.
Before I got into that bubble
I saw others in lines that followed.
Followed down to paths unknown, but
Unlike mine they weren't going home.
You reading this with your faiths and your hopes
Just changing plans so you can cope. Yes, all you who believe in tomorrow
For some reason I believe in
Chaos & sorrow
The sorrow and chaos that fills-up the time before I get back into that line.
ONE before the energy I am.
Before the Bell-man, yes you know who I am.
Exist not knowing where you end up next, but
ENJOY the ride that took up your time in that
Long, long line.

So many things you said...so many you did not have to say.  Life takes us for a ride or two, doesn't it?

Life, to me is neverending.  That is the way I like to look at it I suppose.  I think that I have chosen to stay in this realm & in this form for "x" amount of time.  I think most of the time we signed up for is spent needlessly searching for something we already have.

Hi Cris,

It's in our nature to want and not be satisfied, and being alive can feel never ending when were not sure of what we want out of life. Liked your poem.
