Contrary to Popular Opinion

When I lost focus I gained insight
exchanging exterior thought for inner perspective
and I’m thinkin’, maybe…
our devils may try to lure us into depravity
where pleasures derive from atrocities
with extremes of immoral acts
… for all is not beautiful in the devil’s garden …


Engineered Stumbling Blocks

In dewy-eyed pursuit of the improbable dream
crossing over the joining bridge
standing statuesque
poised at the entrance to Paradise

Manipulating fact & fancy
based on a whim & a whisker
neutral in the fury of chance & choice
laborious & draining on the ego

When all is fashioned in black & white
revealing comely future endowments
would you not choose to follow
a finely choreographed chain of events?

My home is my fortress with all its comforts
an impregnable wall of defense
an ice palace on a chilly night
to be warmed in the light of a brighter day

My Take on Life

Attempting to deal with issues constructively
can sometimes be challenging to say the least
when extrapolating solutions from thin air
drawing strength from the predominance of time
in lending direction toward justifiable ends

Treating things methodically is best
entrusting one’s progress to reason & faith
while building castles in the sand
knowing full-well the impermanence of structures
at the mercy of the rising tides

We, the Sane

I’ll carry this affliction to my grave & for all Time
should I not achieve beyond my wildest dream
blessed with a wealth of experience & humility
well within the parameters of my every act

Wit & wisdom strike a blow for Humanity
reaching far beyond those feeble-hearted to comprehend
unwilling to take steps toward the unknown
and unable to partner with the concept of ‘Eternity’
