Life used to be about the magic

Life was once about the wonder

We ruled the earth

Nothing could stop us

Our oyster awaited

Life grew to be about surviving

Life developed into making it

Work ruled our existence

Our freedom usurped

Old age awaited

Life used to be about surviving

Now it is about enjoyment

Magic rules our world

Life is full of wonder

Our dreams await

Life survives because of the magic

    Very nice. Just like a conversation it flows smoothly. Life has to have magic in it.

    I should remind myself to drop by more often in your site.

    I do believe that sometimes Magic do happens. But most of the time it's 99% hardwork and 1% luck.

    this is true... magic does happens... if you only believe, then it does happens... sometimes, it happens to make us believe.

    zorlone, thank you for the very kind words on my poem. Life without magic is hard for me to imagine. I hope Kim sees you back here regularly.

    Mariuca, glad you enjoyed this one, have a magical day

    g.a.i.a, I agree a lot of hard work is required, even writing poems requires that, and luck is an essential ingredient, but never close your eyes top the power of magic. Illusions come and go, but magic is forever.

    student, thanks for the vote of confidence, good luck with the studies.

    kenneth sena, believing is the key for sure. We all deserve a little bit of magic in our lives and if we believe we might just recognise when it comes knocking.
