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
