This life…

I step out…leaving my path…
I walked…cold air touched me…
I awoke as I went…down the seaside…
I awoke to a feeling…like light shining in my eyes…
The silence of my past…from a place with no name…
The silenced voice…shouting “don’t leave”…

This life began…eons ago my friend…
This life began…as it will end…
This life…you can hear me scream…
This life…can’t you feel the dream…

In my confusion…I turn my eyes into the blue…
In my disillusion…I wheeled in on you..
I awoke to a feeling…a choir so softly singing…
I awoke to the clock…passing the days in steady stream…
Life so special…with no name at all…
Life so special…leaving and slowly part…

This life…felt a touch in my heart…
This life…ending in a new start…
This life began…eons ago like a touch of you…
This life began…when time was born out of the blue…

This life began…in a morning dark as the deepest ocean bottom…
This life began…as the light came that I have forgotten…
This life can’t call…the two of us to meet in glorious hall…
This life can call…upon the Earth to see that we are oh so small…

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

    Part reminiscence, part novel, part existential rumination.This impressive poetically forged cavalcade bears the true hallmarks of this author’s inimitable oeuvre.
