Life, Knowledge (Poem)

Oh tree of life,
Oh tree of knowledge,
Let your leaves fall,
On all those below you.

I have been searching,
Just hoping to find,
The truth that I seek,
A place beyond the lies.

I need to find hope,
Strength to carry on,
I know to be sure,
Of all that’s in my heart.

Nothing of worth,
Comes without a price,
But when do you know,
If that price is too high?

Is it my soul or my heart,
That I have to pay with,
Should cost be the same,
As the value of my life?

I know that the only,
Thing that truly matters,
Is appreciating life,
And all the beauty found in it.

To quickly is life,
Taken from us,
I will give of my love,
And receive it back just as much.

  1. Thanks for the LIKE and following my Blog. Having a full-time job as an Art Director, I don’t post as much as I would like. But every chance I have and when I find interesting subjects, I’m ready.
    A brief bio: I started creating images when I was 13. I had a Kodak Brownie and a darkroom. (I’m not 25 years old). Since then I’ve moved to studio work, weddings, and freestyle. I’ve used everything from that Brownie to 4×5 view camera. For years I never was impressed with digital. But now technology has gotten so much better. When I got my iPhone5, I wanted to see what the camera would do without Photoshop (except for cropping and sizing) and no special lighting or setup.
    I hope you enjoy the images as much as I do.
