Arrows That Fall On Shaky Ground


Who am I?
What values do I posses?
Where is my station in life?
How do I find it?

Life is a riddle,
and I am supposed to
figure it out, or am I fore
ever bond to not know.

In my mind
I carry dreams of my
life, and think I may have
a handle on them.

The station in
life I desire is not one
unobtainable, and not asking of
the world anything.

It seems that every
time I think I have accomplished
a desired goal I find it has
fallen on shaky ground.

What is the price I
have to pay in order to posses
any kind of peace of mind, I believe
my efforts have value.

Who can say they
figured out life and can
tell me why what I have accomplished
never seems to meet its goal.

Am I fore ever to be
wandering and wondering
where my very carefully placed
arrows will fall.


By, Cerenity

Very nicely constructed...I enjoyed the concept (and title concept) of arrows having fallen on shaky ground. Quite creative work. Keep writing!

Cerenity~
Very well done.
The idea of arrows not reaching the target of intent is fascinating.
I like the whole idea of this.

Cerinity...only you can answer all those questions you have posed...but one word of advice...our ground is only as shakey as we let it become. If it becomes to shakey, perhaps it's time we need to build elsewhere

Hi Meadowmuse,

Yep, my creatively constructed concept's on life, WOW I love those words thank you very much for your reply.

Hi Marge,

I love hearing from you, you are so fascinating and so wonderfully surprising and as for my ideas well you never can tell with me. By the way I am working in a poem with the theme being stranded on a island or scavenger hunt and maybe you can match up the things in my poem??????

Hi hootie,

You are right I was almost shaken to death so I change every thing you can imagine and it worked thank you. Most of the stuff I post is from a long time ago.
