Only TWO … “Must Haves”
1) Must keep the flow,
2) Must build off of last poets verse
Without good there is no evil…
Without sadness and despair …
Would we recognize happiness ?
Would we even care ?
Happiness within itself, a myth
Laughter and smiles all to mask
This pain one lives with
Care to smile, an undaunted task
Pain one lives with, you say?
Look again, but through my eyes,
Do you now see, the little things in life?
That whisper, darling, rise above pain.
Treasure each moment of bliss,
Because the happiness that we crave come so rarely,
Do you really wish to spend the precious moments you have,
Dreaming of what ifs and what should have been?
and not everything is mere strife,
look above these grey skies,
no dark without light,
no pride without plight.
Foreboding pain overwhelms the soul,
Fragmented dreams call my name.
Treachery being my only companion,
Leading to only complete devastation.
But in the darkest of light you shall see
a gift of a scent, a sound, a whimper of a breath
will send you careening towards a memory
worth redeeming , a smile without regret, will ensue
for Light illuminates
in a world full of pit
But truth often hides,
Behind the fear and pain,
Where memories reside,
Until we need them again
Memories, long forgotten,
We recall, when needed most,
It doesn’t happen often —
When your feelings need a host.
Yes that is quite often true but
wouldn’t you agree some of the pain
is a prelude to unforseen pleasures
and milestone victories
With all of these emotions trying to remain
I play with this pen to scribe a post
Allowing these words to scream again
In hopes to submerge from feeling so lost
Try to be happy from within
Beauty will then shine through your skin
Make bonds with something absolute
Lead the self through something resolute
A journey with myself is all but sound
A passage I go my own
What fun a journey a friend with now
Aurora of friendship known
fondling my unbound aura
till a new journey is found
for pleasure is almost out of reach
but always comes with a crown
Yet this diadem will fall, alas
and dash upon the dirt.
Still, cresting bones
Woe to happiness and mirth.
Woe indeed, but by each grain and grit of dusty soil
do seek a glint of joy within life’s toil,
and shelter with each moments bit of worth
a smile, a laugh, a kinder, gentler time upon this earth
Every soul has a role to play
within this beleaguered earth
so throw off yor robes of gray
and dance in naked mirth
Though diverse we all harbor latent light
Blown away on the zephyr winds of soul
Each remains as their own bright delight
Forming a complete and wonderful whole
Heart being the window to the true you,
which lies at the core of the whole.
Formed by all you’ve lived through,
lying at the core is your soul.
For aren’t we all encapsulated yet garnished,
a prism of circumstantial happenstance
Destined to be redeemed or forever lost
Tendrils in the wind will surely reap their costs
And yet we hope for evermore
Sparks a-frenzy in the air
Release yourself from your lonely moorings
Live life as you are, without a care
Come now and open your mind
No longer in the dark, no longer blind
Enlightened now forevermore
Live life like never before
