Analysis of All the knots in life

Why must somebody weigh another
as to whom is suitable or not?
Nobody should be judgmental...
as to whom is unfavorable, with all the knots --
in life.

It is told by the elders that good and bad
are entwined together up until the change of life.
From there each will split apart in two passages;
there we choose which to follow --
the Light or strife.

Everything in this life certainly changes;
all of Creation, even the universe.
Being judgmental is not on stable ground;
as is all life everyday and what people say --
about whom is adverse.

This poet doesn't understand people sometimes...

Lucian Tower

I began writing Lyrics, short stories, and poetry some 43-years-ago. When I was in high school, during the 60s, I met the great Robert Frost. He spoke to me about my real elementary attempts at writing and poetry. He took some time with me, after assembly hall and told me to not stop writing. Now, that I have been around the world as a USMarine, and have lived through 2-years of the Vietnam War, I still am writing. Now at 63-years-old, I am enjoying being on with you all. I was born 12/21/1948, in Worcester, MA. There I began trying to write lyrics at 5-years-old, on my Grandmother's piano -- this has been a life-time ambition/Hobby for me. I live now in Gallatin, TN, and I am disabled/retired from the vietnam war.This is how I move around and, hopefully, meet others of like mind/spirit. I am mostly American Indian and 4th Generation Irish in the USA. My poetry are moments, which I've seen, and lived during my life. I believe allpoetry are photos, or glimpses into moments of life. Styles have changed over the years, and it is in reading/listening to others' poems that give poets ideas and imaginations to build their own style. This is who I am, as a man, who simply loves the written arts/preforming arts. Keep on writing!Lucian Tower. more…
