Do You Want?

Part: I

Do you want to meet a dauntless man
who has power to change this Sphere,
whose untold might and glimpses can
shake each trembling fear?

Whose sword amidst the twilight flares,
whom sorrows can’t overwhelm;
whom nothing can stop, nay curse nor prayers
to beat and win his realm.

Who rules over each harrowing night
with a heart of sacred gold,
and triumph over each treacherous fight
with a valorous blood so bold.

Go and stand in scorching heat
with your back against the sun,
and behold the earth beside your feet,
ere the day is done.

You will see the man is waiting there
like an ancient valiant Knight,
and waiting for you in secret prayers
with all his brawn and might.

Part: II

Do you want to meet thy truest friend,
a friend like twinkling star,
whose smiling face and tranquil hands
may carry thy aches far?

The one who will stand along thy side
in all thy gloom and fears,
and swiftly soothe and swiftly hide
thy baffling silent tears.

The one who will soak thy lasting woes
and shine each dreary day,
and make you bloom like charming rose,
and mend each broken way.

Go and stand beside a lake,
and behold the elixir deep,
and gaze upon for thy own sake
ere going for sleep.

You will see thy friend is waiting there
like a peaceful silent dove,
and waiting for you in secret prayers
with all his hope and love.

Part: III

Do you want to meet an able guide
who will shower upon you light,
and make you stroll and sail with pride
and take thy name in height?

The one who will show the truest ways
to rise and beat each fall,
and brighten again the darkling days
and make thy stand so tall.

The one who will catch thy drowning hands
in all the sunless hours,
and straighten again the puzzling bends
to cover thy life with flowers.

Go and stand near mountains high
like an ancient valiant Knight,
and yell beneath the azure sky
with all thy powers and might.

Then stand thee bravely, firm and still
in throes of storm and strife,
for the voice that comes from distant hills
is the voice to change your life.

    I love this. To me it’s a song about reaching out to the universe with prayer and then standing patiently for the answer. That’s how I took it. Perhaps because that’s how I met my husband. This really spoke to me.

    Oh my, you have done it again! Astounded my senses. Awakened my spirit. Tickled my fancies. Brought me to a state of sheer wonder as I read your poem and marveled at the wisdom of your 17 years. Goodness! You are amazing. Where can I find your poetry in a book? I would buy multiple copies and give them as gifts. “Do you want to meet thy truest friend, a friend like twinkling star, whose smiling face and tranquil hands may carry thy aches far?” YES!! And many of my friends need that self-assurance, too … That “truest friend” is in me. In you. Indeed!

        1. Thank you so much! It was really a thrilling experience to get a book published but it seems poetry is not preferred much in contemporary world as it was in the times of Shelley or Keats.

      I love love Love the imagery throughout the entire poem, it is amazingly beautiful.
      My favorite part was part 2 because it spoke directly to my heart and soul. Just reading it brought tears to my eyes.
      You are so young and so gifted. You remind me of my twin brother and then you remind me of me as well.
      I was the one off to the side and in the shadows of him, although he never saw things that way.
      He always thought that I had everything… or possibly just everything that he wanted in life. (Adventure, friends, a partner and family, a good job, security)
      Then if you asked me I would say that I just wanted to be seen and I wanted my parents approval and love.
      One of my mom’s favorite stories to tell is from when we were 2+ and how she would say to my brother “oh you are such a good boy” to my brother and I would tug and tug on her pants and say “I am a good boy too, mama. I’m a good boy too”
      I always wondered why I didn’t know that I was a girl.

      You are talented and you are amazing with words, your imagery is outstanding and just know that I am a fan 😊

          My twin passed away in 2011, so I am sure that he does from Heaven. The biggest thing is that I understand my real worth as I am still here. Hope you have a fabulous day too!
