“ Realism ” ~ of vague define ~

Why so strive,

Ne’er knowing

If attempts

At realism

Will survive,

Thus so to find

A pragmatic

State of mind,

Treats no offers

Of dubious tempt

Or bleak design,

As sad enactments

Of relics in erst time,

For reality we seek

Ever suffers vague define,

Yet we’ll persist

In spite of every miss!

“ Relinquished ” ~ of uncertainty ~

Abandoned thus

To absurdity,

The part of me

That did insist,

On feelings

Of uncertainty…

I then relinquished

Conformity,

Once I distinguished

The enormity,

Of life in a mind free!

                                                          ode to an awakening…

“ Privacy ” ~ an illusional fallacy ~

Privacy be mockery

And illusional fallacy,

It drools suffer fools

Despite their need

Of secure conceal,

With unviable hold

Exacts secret seal,

While truth be told

Spying technology

Of legislator control,

Has this age of ology

Rule even ones soul,

With pathetic assure

Ostensibly bold,

Be political manure,

Of infertile maintain

Who offer a populace

Believing false claim,

Of inviolable privacy!

“ One More Time ” ~ while fate inclines ~

Perhaps a chance,

Tho seems offhand

Fate offered stance

Made understand,

Meant sway emotive

One more time,

Viewed start again

While fate inclines,

Grants you may gain

That ease of mind,

To give emotions chance

With someone worth,

Expressed at glance

Points to unearth

Courage past mine,

Did find a level ground

For one more time around!

inspired by, thus for MD, the brightest star in my haven!

“ Followed Heroes ” ~ that weren’t ~

We followed heroes

That weren’t,

They who sent boys

In their stead

To get burnt,

Maimed, lamed

Or wretchedly dead…

 

We follow cowards,

Who professed

To undo the mess,

Of affluent power

Held un-confessed,

Orchestrators

Of partisan-fests,

Only to find

They heroed us blind,

To pocket what’s yours

And what’s mine…

 

Yet we the naive

Follow heroes that aren’t,

Who cause us grieve,

The while charade

Fixing the morrows,

To incarnate their masquerade!

“ Doing It Right ” ~ bids ne’er guarantee ~

You reach a point

Has you convinced

You’ve done it right,

That you’d persist

Thus without doubt,

Despite held plight

And risk of drought,

Refuses to detract

Obeying ones intuit,

That finds shed light

On wants get it done

With implied insight,

Hence doing it right

In spite of perchance,

Fickle fate chose slight

To state obvious stand,

Bids ne’er a guarantee!

“ Years Ahead ” ~ not an indifferent kiss ~

Years ahead to come

Ought give a choice,

More so than some

Rushed thru past life,

Without it lend a voice

To moderate the pace,

Blind so to fleeting time

Was forever on the run,

In its sad habitual chase

Of accepted rush to wait,

Living in a moribund way

As tho life be but sorry gift,

Akin to an indifferent kiss!
