Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

Avatar Author: gandalfolorin I write to amuse myself, focus my feelings and thoughts, and to generally exercise the little grey cells. Feel free to join in under one condition: keep it interesting! Read Bio

I will climb on the shoulders of giants,
and look to the sulking sky,
never such withering boredom,
never such a deafening cry.

I will be eagerly searching for God,
or maybe depose him and make up my own,
I will chase the horizon and play with the clouds,
forever be happy and banish all doubts.

    I like the message, even if you intend to depose god. Overall it felt like you were saying to hurl one’s self into life, live the adventure, and whatnot. I like that. Seems like a good poem to use as a battle cry or hang up in the kitchen.

    It does speak of jumping into action rather than stagnate in boredom. :)

    Short, simple, encouraging.

    @ THX That’s kind of the beat I was going for :)
