    It Is Not Dying That I Fear

    I want to go down in a blaze
    Not sitting in some mindless haze
    I pen down truth for all to wear
    It is not dying that I fear

    It is silence within my mind
    The lonely moments that I find
    Bound by the cords too strong to shear
    It is not dying that I fear

    And when I linger near the edge
    All my hopes and dreams neatly wedged
    I shout this out to all who hear
    It is not dying that I fear

    I want to go down in a blaze
    It is not dying that I fear

    strikingly profound Mike, I supoose we all want to go out in ablaze those that don't live in fear
    really there is no other way to treat your life as dear, then to point it all and concentrate and for a moment be the firestarter of your flame

    Love this stanza; So strong and resilient as your repeated line dictates throughout the piece. This is a sonnet of some sort right? A variation...

    A wonderful read = Thanks for the share Mike.

    Re: It Is Not Dying That I Fear

    This too, is my favorite stanza. It comfortably stands alone as its own powerhouse Mike! Energetically speaking, yes, at times those chords can be so bound, that they hold the spirit back from soaring, or keeps us bound to the Earth plane. The silence can be defining, and the fear of loneliness creeps in like a cat in the night. I loved this poem Mike, and look forward to reading more.
