“ What We Left Behind ” ~ remains part of us ~

What’s left behind

We may forget,

Tho some of which

With much regret,

Albeit dismissed

As mere neglect,

Persists remain

As part of us,

One suffers fret

Fate instils thus,

Till life defines

Best one be bold,

Ere to achieve

A state of mind,

To render whole

Wouldst fix to find,

Inspiring soul

Desires opine,

Worth rescue

What we left behind!

                     An ode to wishful thinking!

“ Man Shapes ” ~ extant state ~

I see man shape

His self-decline,

Tis no surprise

Wants to escape,

This baleful bind

Free of bent state

Of herculean find,

His legacy spent

Now so apprised,

Suffers implied

Thus to surmise

Intervention failed

We’ll not survive,

His egoistic whims

Shaping our extant state!

“ Sway ” ~ just enough ~

Sway

Just enough

To give of hope

A ray,

Sway

A bit more

To let me find

The way,

Sway

Then again,

To so compose

I mean to stay,

Sway

Fate might fix

Life be with love

Forever

And a day,

Sway

To find share

A destiny repaired,

Free of bent aspirants

Where man gives life to dreams,

Not to elected tyrants!

“ Looking ” ~ to understand ~

Looking

To understand,

Who will demand

Of a wrongful hand,

We have empowered

And thus so entrusted,

To buttress held best

Our collective interest,

As a protector elect,

Without he transgress

His mandated integrity,

For we, the people nation,

Of this, fictional free, land!
