12.12.14- Year of Sorrow
Year of Sorrow


Right between home and nothing

Is the longing for truth?

What will you still want when you can have nothing.

What will you dream of?

When the future can hold anything

What were your dreams made of when you still had dreams

And wouldn’t you want to know what it will be like

If you survive this

One more time?

Will you dream now?

Of lights and of fires

That shine all the way here from someplace you don’t yet know.

  1. I don’t know why exactly but this made me think about my grand-mother who was really strong but had a series of bad lucks in her life. Since we are very similar I always think about her when I am grateful of things in my life (because I am very lucky) How she would reacted if it was her. I don’t know why but I wish she could have felt my happiness.

  2. One of my favorite quotes is “what would you do if you weren’t afraid”. This poem certainly reminds me of that. Beautiful.

  3. I love it, it’s like being uncertain about something but also wanting to try it see what happens when you jump in. It’s very enlightening.

  4. It’s a beautiful poem that harkens a deep longing in all of us… Yet, I still pick up the sadness there.
