Sponge Or Stone

Sponge Or Stone

Do you soak up new experience,
Or would you rather let it slide,
Are you in it for the fun of it,
Perhaps you're just hitching a ride,
Thrilled by others joy with life,
Trying to find what's yours,
Stomping down the corridor,
Or rather opening some doors.
A care for others worry,
Or not a second thought,
Always in a hurry
Got little time for aught.

Look back at all these questions
For they sketch out who you are,
Pause for some reflection
For we all have to travel far...
Whether you are trying to make a difference
Or you are immersed in your own,
Ask yourself the question,
Am I a sponge or am I a stone?

Makes you wonder...442 views and only Angel and yourself have expressed an opinion...hard to gauge if one has made an impression, if the theme resonated with anyone, if the structure worked in other writers opinions...etc etc...I don't care about votes but I do care about opinions.....c'est la vie.
Thank you for saying you like it

Welcome to how others want comments but others only want comments and don’t comment in return. I feel for ya, really I do. It makes me wonder if I am any good. My commenting on others poetry far out numbers my recieved comments. I promise I will keep up with your work you deserve a pat on the back you are that good.

Yeah I know...daft I suppose...but you kinda want to know what other people think.... :) (chuckling at myself here)....I try to comment if something has made a particular impression, though sometime's i'll like or vote and make no comment at all (guess the poem in question said it all on those occasions).
No bother with promises (softlass :)) we know we read each others ink.

I know what I think, and I don't mind telling you. Exquisite poetry. Top drawer stuff, and by the way, I prefer to be a sponge. Barry x

Nice poem. I was reading the comments above and wanted to let you know that that's the way it is on this site. You get plenty of views but obviously only a few comment or vote. You get used to it. I'm a sponge by the way.
