Falling, Profound

Profound: the purpose, the source, the destination

Falling, Profound
Falling, Profound…one state to another

Falling, like a penny dropped
from a tower high in heaven’s realm,
the ground so far tis but imagination
that holds it in my mind,
and falling but a feeling grim
with no real understanding
that there is a ground at all.

So falling is what I am,
my flight no course I’ve chosen,
just knowing that never still I’ll always be,
falling from one state to another,
yet impact my fear, my doubt
holds me in expectancy,
that death will greet me at the end of my fall.

Yet here I am, falling still,
a flight of sorts, a freedom of movement,
but I cannot see the ground,
is it there, or my thoughts profound,
not knowing what this is,
this life of falling till I’m delivered safe to what,
or is this life at all?

Falling, like a penny dropped from heaven,
am I a soul unleashed,
the fall my conscious birth to earthly life,
or could this dream be my angel wings to find,
to save this body
before I greet the ground,
and my end to mark my beginning?

    Deep thoughts in your poem, well penned. The circle of life goes on and on and I go on in life believing that there is an angel looking out for me ready to catch me when I fall.

    Thanks Nithya, glad you enjoyed it. I believe that falling is what we do, regardless, and whether we hit the ground or not, the learning is all that’s meant. Take care

    So much food for thought, Tony! The end or the beginning? Flight, freedom? Falling to find your angel wings? What a new dimension of life from birth to death!

    I felt as though I was falling as I read this, and the end so well done, as I could hear the wings open in flight, at just the right moment. So well concieved, while we fall through life with uncertainty, our end, not the question, but our growing along the way. Lovely Tony.

    As you say Tony, in life we are continuing to fall and learn. Now and then we may stop on a ledge when we have learnt a particular lesson, but then start falling again with no ground in sight. Good work.
