300th poem "Mine to Blame"

Those careless days as selfishness reveals
Where once all love was missing from my heart
Least solace for my fellow mans' ideals
Whose wealth only serves to set us apart

Be gentle still while my compassion swirls
Wonderful thoughts fancied soon fleeting gone
My Master would make strings of perfect pearls
As I would have no luck to happen on

Ah me, I stumble on paths well trodden
Discarded shells glitter in my wet hands
In my pockets full of weeds well sodden
Piled up on an oceans' broken sands

Like searching into a soul I would tame
If for only my life was mine to blame

About this poem:
I am deeply reflective with self awareness on this most festive day of Thanksgiving...like my Puritan fathers before me....is my fate upon the shores of new and wild land.

A very beautiful poem Yankee, I really like this one a lot thumbs up I suppose many are reflective this time of year when days are dim and short. You have written 300 poems applause all of your poetry is well written and that's indeed something to be proud of. I hope you write many more and I look forward to them all.

Hi Yankee

300 poems is some output, well played on maintaining your standards through so much poetry... and this 300th is quite superbly written.

Best wishes

Hello Yankee,

A beatiful write and very reflective.

The last two lines is a deep expression of need which make and define us as seekers. But the end or the last line is so purposely a reflection of hopes and aspirations. Perhaps.
