John Lennon’s 75th birthday concert

Nostalgia as misty eyes fantasize o’er
years swimming past in ages–
eyes fill as an ocean
chest fills with emotion,
the heart feels a notion of turning pages

same old-same old…again
our world at the brink of war

Dejavú is but a point of view
hearing and feeling the beat
of the music…again.  Don’t know
whether to cry or to sing,
or what to want more than anything

same old-same old…again
our world at the brink of war  

To breathe with the rhythm
of music of the heart
marking the beat in time passing;
recalling  dreams and
memories — the soul in part.

same old-same old…again
our world at the brink of war

Sometimes the longing is near too much
to bear the emptiness within–
the yawning chasm, the
lonely heart caught in a spasm,
aching to escape into the rotating prism.

same old-same old…again
our world
at the brink of war

  1. Great poem it is sad we are still in the same situation he was speaking out against all that time ago. On another point have you thought of adding additional share option I would have shared this on twitter for you.

      1. Yes I know exactly what you mean. I hate when people post about their kids parents evening, I have persuaded my wife to stop doing that! Or the ones that constantly post about how borred or miserable they are. Well if they spent less time on facebook….

      2. sometimes there is a big rumble going on in a family…name-calling, laments about rude, stupid, extravagant, racist, bad-mouthing people….I rarely check Facebook, but my emailers skipped out when FB was created. So now I don’t know what’s going on. And I don’t really care.
