The speed of life.

You brought us the whole world back inside you.
Burst every blocked road
and what a wonderful life it has become!
Those years when everything became strong and clear
and the wilderness came back with the speed of life
and everything shouted … live it!
I stormed out and looked at you
Yes, to see you melt the winter’s sadness
Yes, I’m out on the green meadows.
You are warm and bright and full of radiance
and your kingdom is as pure as gold
like the sun – hidden for too long.
Now flowers open and I looked
that now as the sky became big and blue
and the moment is born to joy.
Your hand was so hot and good
and you became beautiful and full of courage
so beautiful I had to cry.
Our lord invited to the party
and kissed every single guest
in love’s mighty halls
with eyes, wondering and blue
we just look and look and looked
and swallowed the speech of life:
That life is worth living
in spite of doubt and great difficulty
in spite of the pain there,
and love is and will be
and whatever the whole world say,
the force that feeds the speed of life in our hearts.

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
