Tower of Babel.

I know that the past is often forgotten, the eyes are getting blind and the boundaries are bursting.
In an eternal search and creation, we confirm our level, take over once more and stretch our hands toward the sky to draw it down towards us.

We have released faith and think we deserve to take power and honor.
It’s as if it all had to bear or burst, while our sky flies chasing its glittering corners against a mirror image of Heaven.

I know we are created in a different image than ourselves.
At a time when we build a future, we forget the past, it’s as if we always bury the past to reach the future and forget about ourselves now.

I have lost faith in the mission we are moving on.
We still use spikes and bullets to put others in place, greedyly exploit the needs of the masses and reduce them to tools and sacrifices in our elite world.

The babel tower we must create within our soul as the highest peak of dreams we can reach. We can not take God’s seat but sit by His throne only. We can not lift gravity so nobody can ever put us in place.

I know that continents arise, live and slowly disappear again.
If we forget what happened before us, we have forgotten the disasters for millennia of years ago, the world does not look today as it did yesterday.

We have the belief that we become gods and can rule over an energy we do not even understand.
Empires and great civilizations have ruled, but only on a grace given from somewhere higher than we ever can comprehend.

We are created in a spark of love, an energy that emerged when life took its first breath. An energy and creation that we have been and continuously been through for millions of years, and which continues until the sun turns it’s light off.

Now we are here on top of our own universe and looking forward to new conquests.
We found God’s particle but do not understand the cycle of what is created for us. Now we are sitting here in our self-imposed prison and can await a predicted sentence.

The babel tower is not a construction we are going to build, but a learning that everything changes in the pursuit of eternity at the highest insight. The doubt that we can all reach the top is strong and our energy should be used to build bridges and not illusions.

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 attitude one must pursue must always be positive. Climbing up is a need of the hour, yet the strive be with the right strength to unite! A good moral, indeed!
