I Wish I could Keep Up!
I wish to sing a thousand songs on its fascinating beauty.
But the artistically carved pieces of rocks
hold my tongue in a bit of frenzy
for I seem to be lost in their hypnotizing beauty, my thoughts entangled in knots.
I wish to write a thousand sonnets on its enormity.
However the magnificence of these towering mountains
dwarfs my words and creative ability.
And a painful feeling of inefficacy is all that remains.
I wish to feel the depths of the oceans
but its fathomless pulchritude seems to drown me
with thoughts so elated but marked with a thousand fears
and I am left with no other option but to deny myself the touch of something I love to see.
I wish to dance to the beats of the wind.
But the fierceness of the wind would not let me perform
for the pace is too fast for my distressed soul.
And I can’t help but deny myself my heart’s desires for they seem too fancy and tiresome.
