Essence of Life

Location

 


Times of laughter


Times of joy


Joy experienced with friends


Joy derived from the pleasure of learning


Learning in high school


Learning in the outside world


World of possibilities


World filled with endless chances to achieve hopes and dreams


Dreams rife with endless prospects


Dreams of wild success


Success is a path paved with failures


Success is the staunch refusal to never give up


Up up up the spiraling staircase of triumph


Up up up to the brilliant luminescence of the stars


Stars twinkling, winking, watching impassively from above


Stars dusting the heavens, wise pinpricks of hope


Hope hidden, out of sight, barely out of reach


Hope flooding into the world like a tidal wave of promise


Promise me you will never leave


Promise me to always stay


Stay forever, my love


Stay beauteous, my love


Love the laughter bubbling from your lips


Love your wonderful and humorous quips


Quips satirizing the fallacies of humanity


Quips emphasizing the beauty of human nature


Nature is love personified


Nature is the embodiment of all things beautiful


Beautiful darkness, beautiful nightmare


Beautiful dream, beautiful chaos


Chaos whirling like a monstrous hurricane


Chaos turning calm in the eye of the storm


Storm raging around me


Storm lulled by the quieting presence of family


Family supporting and loving


Family remaining by my side as the backbone of my existence


Existence cold and lonely when devoid of companionship


Existence empty when barren of warmth


Warmth derived from the fires of friendship


Warmth is the flickering flame in the darkness


Darkness flooded with scintillating light


Darkness vanquished with the torch of emotion


Emotion overflowing within me


Emotion suffusing throughout my very soul


Soul of love


Soul of laughter


…..laughter....


…...love.......
