A poem about growing.

Written by JavaQueen2000 on Fri, 1997-08-01 05:34. Poems 

Eyes Wide Open The wide open space is filled with the gentle ocean
spray. The smell of fresh air permeated the air. The feel of the warm 
sun caressed my skin. I sat watching the surf crashing into the cliff's 
below. As I heard the clandestine chorus of the seagulls confer with 
each other as they fished for their evening meal. My eyes are wide 

My mind is free to capture the pleasure in the tranquility of nature.
Nature on the edge of living life to it's the fullest. I feel their 
energy surging through my body. Like their crescendo, emotions surface, 
crashing into my tranquil mind. Just as the simple pleasures are 
encircling the peaceful moments of my life. My eyes are wide open. 

I feel a disconnected presence searching for the calm within the storm.
A storm of emotional upheaval has torn me apart . I feel the pieces of 
my disconnected obsessions forces me to scrutinize my existence. I have 
watched as the timeless passionate quest for happiness does not exist 
in monetary gain. Only the shallow find happiness in wealth. My eyes 
are wide open. 

An emotional void leaves me with a superficial existence. I desire the
taste of true freedom. The freedom to feel the warm sun embrace my 
body. The freedom to experience energy surging through my soul. I 
recognize the value of happiness being measured by the people you have 
met. The friends you have gained. The family you have in your fold and 
the God that you are at peace with. My eyes are wide open. 

I will hold on to the quiet moments. Embrace the diversity of life with
each serge of energy. The simple pleasure is within. I will enjoy the 
simplicity of existence and welcome all that life has to offer. For my 
eyes are wide open and the simple pleasure is You.
