Yesterday was my birthday…. I’m now twenty something years old. Last year i was twenty somtin years old. So nothing has changed really. Anywhoo…. Todays piece i started a long time ago (the amount of unfinished poems i have ehn…), i was flipping through my notes and completed the poem today.


Mind not life and its inconsistencies.
We humans and our unique idiosyncracies.
Our actions and unavoidable consequences.
An inevitable end – The sum of our existence.

Tear a page from the book of the ages.
Look through it and say what you see.
Glean the acquired wisdom of the ages.
See what was, what is and what is going to be.

Many reasons abound to err.
But it takes just one to be steadfast.
Just one reason for your lines to be cast.
And to the port of good hope, your life steer.

A thousand and one reasons not to love.
To hate, be mean, be angry and be sad.
Just look around and you’d get enough.
Alter your view and you’ll yet see, its not all bad.

For right in there exists The One.
The one reason to be happy nonetheless.
To live, to love and to be all but none.
To stand in the face of doubt and believe. Nevertheless!

Just one reason is all it takes.
To break bounds and set the pace.
To rise up again after you fail.
Find that one reason and power your quest.

The quest to live and be happy.
To succeed and make your mark on Time’s sands.
To leave and the world would know you came.
To die here and still live forever.

Whatever your quest is, you need just that one reason, find it and use it to succeed.

I remain @OverlordNoni
