so damn tired…

copyright cwmartin 2012

this road
is longer
than i thought
much harder
to climb
than promised
too many hours
spent praying
with nothing
to show
except
some bruised knees
and
empty dreams
all
those
expectations
of what life
would be
are
nothing more
than words
written
on winter’s frosted glass
before
sunrise

  1. nice capture of life’s essential meaninglessness – it’s up to the individual to give it meaning, isn’t it? for me, reading, your poem contains a world of meaning.

    words
    written
    on winter’s frosted glass
    before
    sunrise

    it’s as if what preceded was painted in flat black on white, and suddenly, a world of dimension and colour opens up. brilliant!

  2. A certain hopelessness comes thru to me. That’s sad. It always amazes me that people seem to want instant answers to their prayers, He is faithful to those who love him, but what we ask comes in His timing not ours. One doesn’t know for sure that there is nothing to show for all those prayers, one needs to keep faith and hope in their life, we do not know what He has planned for us.

  3. iCat Says: It’s also know as the “terrible dailiness”.

    However, the poet Leonard Cohen, said it very well: “There’s a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in.”

    You expressed the “terrible dailiness” very well. Good job. 🙂
