Jim Morrison Is Alive

8 December 1943, Jim Morrison came to this planet. He sang, wrote and went away. Jim Morrison is alive. Yes, his shadows are followed, and prayed. He is the greatest songwriter and poet of all time. Everyday I read Wilderness volume 1 which motivates and inspires me but I never got a chance to write about it. So here I am writing today.

Every morning I read his poetry and every night I think about his poetry. They are so plain, so simple yet so profound. He is the greatest American poet. I wear his T-shirt and I feel him. The moment I feel sad, I read “Wilderness”. It soothes my soul. He sings like a dream and writes like an insane. His poems give me a feeling of trance without a glass of wine.

He says – a quality of ignorance, self deception may be necessary to the poet’s survival. He says-Each day is a drive through history.

Jim’s poetry doesn’t say anything, it just gives you an indication of all possibilities. It opens up new vistas for you to choose and walk in. There is surrealism, mystery, love and lust in his writings. There is a sense of freedom. There is everything actually. You can’t ignore his writing because they don’t speak to you, they just intrude inside you. Oh! Jim you are so alive at least in my living room. I can feel you, hear you and smell you.

He is the king of the cult generation. He is the soul of every young man and woman. His pictures inspire me and his thoughts don’t let me sleep. I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night and read his Wilderness. Some people die so young, some leaves their mark within a short time and they walks away without a whisper. Why genuine souls like him don’t stay long? Why they just fade away so quickly? I want to see Jim Morrison and meet him. His poetry is not enough for me. I just want to be like him. Yes, for me Jim Morrison is alive. I can’t believe that he is dead and gone.

Hey wherever you are. Whatever you are now may be. Just remember someone is praying and following you every morning, every night…

  3. For you, 'rider on the strom', who continues to 'break on to the other side', you did more than 'touch me' to 'light my fire.'
