Seems we are both thinking about time and life this week, my friend. I just finished a poem about time, though not nearly as eloquently written as this one. It flows easily and tells of a life well-lived. Thank you for sharing this work with us.

I think that we are already in the promised land, but some are making it worse and they just don't realize it yet. Thanks for sharing. Excellent work! No mistakes.

The author's words are clear, descriptive, and creative. I remember the
poem by Robert Frost and really liked it. The author's words convey
acceptance for the journey life has taken him on. The poem flows and connects well. Have a great weekend!....Maria

Beautiful, wonderfully written poem. Of course I love Robert Frost poem, the Road Not Taken and this reminds me very much of it although you definitely wrote your own version. I love the entire poem, for the third stanza is the one I find outstanding, and touches my heart. Gorgeous work.

Hello Jake,
An excellent poem that reflects nicely on Frost's The Road Not Taken.
Frost's opinion was that it mattered little which road one took, you'd likely
end up in the same or a similar place.
Very good meter and rhyme added to an excellent message.
Well done.
Robert

Your poem reflects how most of us have traveled in life. "When gazing at life's setting sun, regrets are few, battles won", are two lines that impact the reader and add to your poetic form. Robert Frost would be proud.

You manage the meter and rhyme well here.

The repetition of "things" in stanza 1 seems ineffective, maybe because "things" is such an oatmealy word. Consider: The better times seemed up ahead/with what I did, with what I said.

In line 6, maybe "anytime" should be "any time." I don't think "anytime" is a word. (Of course, in a poem nonwords are acceptable!)

Maybe use something other than a dash after "grand." Maybe a period or a comma.

Kind of a sad poem, but I like the positive ending.

A reflective write about the long road travelled and there are no regrets, and how short life is and how we should appreciate it without wasting time, a fine write, much enjoyed, love Dolly x

Hi Jay,

A very heart felt poem about the passing time and how it felt back then VS how it feels now to have those years behind:

"pressing on with reckless haste,
with never anytime to waste;"
VS
"tiresome, painful, slow"

Then, you show us the present, that might be lonely, still there's a sense of empowerment:
"There's no one now to hold my hand
and show with love they understand.
When gazing at life's setting sun,
regrets are few, with battles won."

And you close with the advice for us:
"This life is short, though it is grand-
Seek in your search that promised land."

Well structured, honest and thought provoking!

There's one minor mistake, I believe:
"with never (anytime!) to waste.

I believe it should be 'any time'.

Thank you for sharing!
Warmly,
J

Your poem brings past, present, and future together at a quick pace. I loved how you spoke 'to the point' and moved on. This has been a most delightful read.
