FADE (a poem)

like dusk and echo fade away,
i know my time will come one day

to float away from this dear life,
and make my way from human strife:

to a land where sin is no more,
and peace crushes every single war.

yes: for until then i will wait
for the day when love conquers hate.


Well, this poem was not what I was expecting. The past few days have been produced very melancholy subject matter, and this one is not an exception to the rule. While I have not felt overly emotional lately, I do believe that this poetry series is churning out some deep-rooted thoughts in me, and I’m glad this outlet exists to share what’s on my mind.

We’re not guaranteed a set amount of days on this planet, and that’s why I believe it is so important to live our lives with optimism, bravery, and a taste for adventure. While I think I’ve got decades left on this planet, I really don’t know what I’ve got. And though this poem’s tone is almost nonchalant about the future, I’m not really in agreement with the final lines: but until that day i will wait

Huh? A poet doesn’t agree with her poem?

Not really. While I normally do wait around for things to happen my way, I don’t think we should live our lives like this. So maybe someone would be more apt to wait for happiness, but I believe we have the choice to transform our issues into positive energy. Without getting into controversial subject matter, I just want to say that I hope everyone lives a life devoted to loving others. And sometimes this love has a funny way of showing itself, that’s for sure.


Okay, I’m definitely a scattered brain right now. Hopefully tomorrow’s poem will be a little clearer. I really am ready to move onto happier material, so let’s hope tomorrow will be more upbeat. Only time will tell, I suppose!

Until tomorrow,

-Katie Kay.
