The Unfathomable Amorphous of life

About the poem

Should we be always in a state of shaping a strong bones? An unbreakable rigidified souls and or emotions? Or should we be flexible and formless?like the tranquil of a flowing river so no matter what's in front of our life we still can grasp, Cope and adapt whatever the circumstance of a changing seasons. Cause that's exactly this poem is all about, you are about to face the wrath of the world and the wrath of your life, which you can't even begin to understand.

As season come and go,

Where it's not only the sun awaits the moon

Not only greens awaits the rain

Not only humans in need of oxygen

Not solely my soul who felt the distractions.

In saddened stillness,

I left my tenuous soul concealed outside

The darkness

Preparedness against all odds was

bruised impossible.

Was I,

look like the man who watched

the dying tree?

Scroll to Continue

While the inhaled air

Smells like death to me.

Was I known adaptable and flexible

On the move?

There's none stability for nothing is certain

Therefore none existences is fixed.

For as long as the water flows,

everything changes.

For the rhythm of the whispering wind is


Impelled to desperate directions

Distractions hurtles to deaths.

Have must I,

Build a formless soul?

And not just a strong foundation?

And my weakness must be difficult to observed,

So my inmost cannot be crossed?

So, should I be amorphous as wind?

Formless as water?

Shapeless as fire?

For there's a man who watched the tree

Once taught me

Only then, whom is formless cannot be

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on March 23, 2021:

This is a different kind of poem, but it is awesome.

Life continues forward & we can see and feel the pain of death in front of us.

I don't know if being formless let's us not be affected by all that we see or feel.

But it does help to give us the strength to make it to another day.

Great poem!

It's awesome to see you Ms David!

Hope all is well.

My pleasure to answer your question Ms David. To clarify the poem, it isn't about immortals. I used formless as metaphor for human personality.

Formless as metaphor for having no limitation to endure adversities, which means flexible and can adjust whatever Obstacle is on the way.

Ravi Rajan from Mumbai on March 23, 2021:

Wonderful poem Treshty .I loved the formless as water and shapeless as water as it gives so much deepness and dimension to the poem. Thanks for sharing.

Hertha David from Windhoek, Namibia on March 23, 2021:

Treshty.. Hi it's good to read from you again.

This poem. I don't know am failing to understand, is it about the mortal and imortal?

What exactly are you trying to say by formless?

I'm so sorry I have to ask however, it's really interesting and I love the way you wrote everything thing is am reading it in a meeting and I can't do my own research.
