WILL I STILL BE I

14 Sep 2016

WILL I

still be I

LIKE a brook

that babbles

I AM I AM I

GIVING BIRTH

2 tiny THINGS

and did I join

a hand or two

DIAMONDS IN WORTH THAT

never LIE

OH GO

once MORE

to the shine

YOU can still SEE

AND EXPLORE

TIME to dream

and time to change

from narrow suspicion

to a love and endless RANGE

OH let me

cut out a piece of SKY

AND build a landing

where a SOUL

can SIGH

and try

to clear a mind

and find

a TALKING WAY

WHERE adults wander

and WALKING STAY

TO LEARN THERE IS

A gentler and happier DAY

AND when they brush

clouds dark AWAY

PEACE COMES WITH LOVE

& HELPING the lonely

to have a SAY

AND DON’T FORGET

A book or two

READ from the moon

or inside a SHOE

FEET CAN LEARN

AS much as your HEAD

WALK as your ancestors

ancient ideas

are not DEAD

AND NOW TO the

QUESTION

WILL I BE I

WHEN I CLIMB

on a cloud

and look down

from the SKY?

OR THE WORLD

makes big changes

while I studied

A LONG WHILE

LEARN respect

for those around

you

then it become

EASIER TO SMILE

AND STILL

you or I

can keep on

Loving

a very long WHILE

WILL I STILL BE I

WHEN a world

can PLAY

and not worry

about the tomorrow

of TODAY

What do you think?

Written by Johndavisnearby

LET loose the Night
to play its strings in my Heart
the Music of the Ages
has a Beat from the Start
A Tit a Tat
and the Tap of a Shoe
Even the Muses listen to YOU
A Lute a Flute
Cello and violin Too
O Night of the Soft Winds
the children of Earth
Listen to YOU

    • Thank you. At age 80 , young in mind, a fledgeling at photos, cn’t seem to make the pictures big enough to satisfy Verily, although no problem on Twitter, johnnearby on BingBing play , Tumbler etc. I have had two camera’s stolen from me and cannot afford another one. Verily is for the Elite, wealthy and not a Plebe like me.
