Life’s Mysterious Journey – Poem

Good afternoon everyone,

I hope that you are all having a fantastic day!!

I’ve always really enjoyed writing poetry, and as I haven’t done it for a while, I decided to give it a go again. I picked up my pen, put words on paper and thought, why not see what happens?!

Hello & Welcome to Sweeney’s Blogs!

Here is my brand new poem, “Life’s Mysterious Journey”, I hope you all enjoy 🙂 :

In a world so quiet, my thoughts begin to spiral away,
My future’s looking jumbled, no words left to say, 
I wander around these streets that I once knew, 
Seeking to find the answer to the mystery that carries no clue, 
I look from my present right through to my past, 
Wondering if I can ever find the true me at last. 

My whole life is a mystery, searching for my truth, 
Try as I might, I fail to remember my youth, 
I gaze at the mirror, but what do I see, 
What is really left of the old me?
I look from my present right through to my past, 
Wondering if I can ever find the true me at last. 

Life is full of questions, who we are & where we’re going, 
We stumble forward, the way out never knowing, 
I think back on the years & reflect with a smile, 
No matter the destination, the journey is worth the while,
I look from my present right through to my past, 
Wondering if I can ever find the true me at last.

It’s amazing to be back writing poetry again, it’s been too long!! I wrote this one while having a chat with one of my coursemates at university, you’ll never know when that spark of inspiration can hit!

  • Nice poem friend, we change without our own consciousness and when we look back, things have changed tremendously. I think that is really strong emotion, the feeling of our precious self lost amidst the changes. Poetry puts words in to a rhythmic trance, I do like poetry but I don’t do it often. When I do it, it’s just a nonsense poem 🙂

    • Thanks for the lovely words! I really like how you’ve phrased it there, you’ve captured the true beauty and mystery of life 🙂

      I’m sure you’re much better at writing poems than you think you are!

  • Nice poem, This brings strong emotion about how we lose ourselves in the sea of change. When we look back, we can’t believe the past us was ‘us’. I rarely write poems, but they are fun and I often end up writing nonsensical verse 🙂
