Wise Enough” by Lamb

—–

I dreamt time was running wild and bleeding out quick.

Comets falling from the sky, I had such grave nightmares.

Waking up I saw, how precious is the time we have here,

I realized no one here is wise enough to give all they are.

——

Comets falling for the sky, I had such grave nightmares.

Are we bright enough to outshine celestial starlight,

I realized no one here is wise enough to give all they are.

In each of us, is someone we don’t know, who is too lost.

——-

Are we bright enough to outshine celestial starlight,

We have multiple chances times to make a small difference,

In each of us, is someone we don’t know, who is too lost.

You’re real, no one else has your world role, your unique gifts.

——

We have multiple chances, times to make a small difference,

Frightened of the dawn, I brush stardust from my blurry eyes.

You’re real, no on else has your world role, your unique gifts.

Desist wasting time, letting years pass abandoned.

—–

Frightened of the dawn, I brush stardust from my blurry eyes,

What is our purpose here? Stop killing our time dear.

Desist wasting time, letting years pass abandoned,

In our power is changing the world ’til our dying day.

—–

What is our purpose here? Stop killing our time dear,

Waking up I saw how precious is the time we have here.

In our power is changing the world ’til our dying day,

I dreamt time was running wild and bleeding out quick.

Pantoum Poetry Form:

The design is simple:

Line 1

Line 2

Line 3

Line 4

Line 5 (repeat of line 2)

Line 6

Line 7 (repeat of line 4)

Line 8

Continue with as many stanzas as you wish, but the ending stanzathen repeats the second and fourth lines of the previous stanza (as its first and third lines), and also repeats the third line of the first stanza, as its second line, and the first line of the first stanza as its fourth. So the first line of the poem is also the last.

Last stanza:

Line 2 of previous stanza

Line 3 of first stanza

Line 4 of previous stanza

Line 1 of first stanza

You’re on the —

Low of life that’s fine,

Just take time,

Realize —

No one can see the future,

Sit down, stay awhile.

—-

Take your time,

Value the time you have,

So your low,

Many more —

Are deeper in dirt than you,

So, rise another day.

——

If you’re here,

You matter a lot,

Building life —

Takes much time,

Nothing is perfect, it hurts,

Rise to the challenge.

—-

You don’t want —

To be alive but —

You don’t know,

What it is

Truly breathing free, inhaling —

Life is tough, rise up.

——

Find your help —

Seek out others to —

Stop the thoughts;

Those anxious,

Murmurs insecure and bleak,

Rise you are not weak.

—–

Emotion’s bleed,

Guy or girl life hurts.

Healing is —

A process.

Don’t quit, don’t give in; fight on —

Sun always rises.

——

Your life is —

Precious but, —

You hear what you feel;

Alone with —

No hope or —

Reason to survive, find faith —

God cares, she cares, rise.

—–

You matter,

You’ll see put down your —

Weapon, don’t inflict —

Dying wounds.

Breath, seek help,

There are phones beyond no home,

Let her in and rise.

——

She wants you —

To feel the light’s glare,

Sunshine with,

Delightful —

Rays of hope; fight on, don’t end —

Your life, rise up, swim.

—–

You don’t want —

To try anymore,

But there’s her,

Heart beating —

Next to yours, so hope, believe,

Rise for tomorrow’s.

—–

Tomorrow,

Never dies, the —

Words are true.

Life is yours,

Your legs tremble so walk on,

Rise, you’re valuable.

—–

Innately you;

Irreplaceable.

If you left,

Her heart would —

Shatter; others too would wonder,

Why such promise fell.

—-

Let them in,

They can’t see inside,

Thoughts rolling,

So fast, get —

Their attention, ask ’til —

Taking their hands you rise.

—-

You want life,

You choose it crying,

Not easy —

To admit,

You want to be alive, not dead,

Rise up, live well.
