Rolling Life Ball

Vibrations from the Heavenly voice.

A spoken word of power.

A chaos in the motion of the atoms.

Tomorrow, the past reference for today.

For future few are sure.

Now, a constant placement of time.

Is there a space for me? A place in this world?

I shook off bad memories like a grain of salt.

The game with chessmen all black and white.

The end, a point of paramount significance of the checkerboard life.

A smile along with the teardrop, somewhere there.

Away with the baggage of emotions.

A rolling ball.

Dreams of a little kids’ wishes in the air…

Dandelion pod seeds with a single breath.

A purpose engraved in my heart with the tool of fulfillment.

Color my days to be alive, to believe!

Follow the trail, fall on the mud.

Traverse on my ways, I give you my hand.

Lift up your head, look at the sky.

Your place in this world.

That’s the real life.

Hi Gloria,

Brilliant poetic lines; nice use of poetic devices: imagery, simile, repetition etc. Would you like to share what inspired you to write this poem? Could you please share a short annotation for deeper understanding and more discussion around the theme(s) of the poem? I picked up the themes of “UNCERTAINTY” “HOPE”.

Hey Gloria,

Great poem. I like the free verse unbridled by the eliminated rhymes. It really gives a sense of freedom and flow to the whole poem :). It kinda reminds me of the English Romantics, especially Wordsworth.
"Follow the trail, fall on the mud..." - I imagine this is a call to live your life at its fullest, without the fear of of possible failure. At least I interpret it that way and I love it :).

Thanks a bunch to all!

@ Samuel

The theme of the poem was 'our place in this world'. What inspired me to write it was a competition. I wanted it to show the bad side of life along with hope, freedom,optimism and happy memories. For me our place in this world is beyond our human eyes. This poem brings the emotions i wanted; sweet nostalgia and happy moments of life.

@ Muhammad

Thanks !

@ Nenad

That's nice to hear. Great interpretation and i'm glad you love it!
