If I stay…

I am taking my time; don’t really want to do this…
Slowly and reluctant as was I thinking of something…
Your words so definitive…
So infinite…

I go around getting nothing done, don’t really care for tomorrow…
Ever so quiet in all I should have thought about and said…
Your decision is so definitive…
So infinite…

If I stay here just a little bit longer, only minutes…
Speculating how to postpone the unavoidable…
Your verdict is so definitive…
So infinite…

I stop for a moment and stare out the window, looking at nothing…
The rainbow shinning in shimmering color in the corner of my eye…
Your mind is so definitive…
So infinite…

I know how the story goes, lonely days gathering…
Follow your heart is something impossible to do…
Your heart is so definitive…
So infinite…

If I stay here just a little bit longer, only to delay the pain…
Speculating in how to stay here and never face the truth…
Your choice is so definitive…
So infinite…

Hey Destiny Poets. I live in Denmark about 90 km from Copenhagen and works in Roskilde as a teacher and mentor. I'm probably not like most men of my age and yes I am aged 50 years old. I've tried a lot of jobs without finding what I'm passionate about. Writing, I have always loved and I was probably just 14 years old when I produced my first poem. I have not yet been released some of my poems, but I hope it happens one day. I just finished a novel which I would like to have published, now the time and talent show whether I have the ability to write. Poetry has a special meaning for me and this is where I really feel at home. My life has sometimes been marked by many losses. In the mid eighties, I lost my fiance at the time when the accident happened was pregnant. She lost control of the car and drove herself and her child, who was on his way thereby, to death. It has really made its mark on my life and way of thinking. In the late nineties, I had problems with my back and had to seek other avenues to support myself. I finally decided to enroll at university and was admitted to the humanist line. I read philosophy, science, psychology, journalism and history, but philosophy and psychology is my major interest. I thrive today in the RUC aka Roskilde University just 25 km from Copenhagen. My job is to guide and teach, and it is a job with speed and that gives me a lot again. I have two collections of poems ready to be released, if I can find a publisher who will publish them. I have no children, it would obviously be my lot in life although I have tried, but luck never smiled at me that way. If you have any questions for me so I hope you just ask away all you want, I'll respond as soon as I have read the questions. With kindest regards from Jan Sorensen

    The author’s inimitable poetic acumen makes this a delightful and engaging work. For me there was more than a hint of Bob Dylan’s “If You Gotta Go Go Now” about it.
