Poem: Shall We?


Quote of the day:

When we are born, we cry, that we are come
To this great stage of fools.
-William Shakespeare




Shall we set forth at dusk.
Silent like lambs.
Footprints under street lamps.

Shall we ask for directions.
Lost like sheep.
But not enough for us to lose sleep.

Shall we excavate the earth.
Probing for truth.
Alas we run out of places to look.

Shall fate define destiny or...
Mold a future.
Missing is vengeance's mirror.

Shall we sit idle.
While we seek for liberty.
Shall we?

Shall we go...
Do you know.
Are you ready.
Shall we?

  11. "Missing is vengeance's mirror".

    B'ratti, i used to consider myself highly intellectual but this is really good.

    To the rest of you, i am clueless about the first line, just say what you think it means.
    vengeance's mirror is missing, what does that mean? to me it means peace or what? like i said i am clueless and i like to figure things out.

    peace!
