Ignoramus

Listen to audio

          – with fixed inheritor –

Allow me ignorance
As hapless perceives,
Can bury my thought
As in fixed inheritor,
Set saved of fraught
With anxious plead, 
Spares of riddance 
Of felt dubious deed,
As fate bid quittance 
But hardly with ease,
One finds admittance
From but a thin teach,
So as to gain entrance
Thru wavering preach,
Be long on encumbrance 
Save ignoramus’s reach!

                           Seen as the plight of such humans...

Holding a thought
To ponder its worth,
Sagaciously ought
Ye honor its birth,
Be erudite sought
Observes held bide,
Thus not be fraught
Looking wide eyed,
As tempted to flirt
With fool’s divide, 
Tho, find you divert  
The while lets slide,
Implies shan’t avert 
Held fixed be last ride,
So shan’t flaunt its worth!

                              Ode to inevitable fading memory...

Looking

– for a mesmeric fellow –

Holds may be finally time 
You fix mesmerical place,
While aging state inclines
Must allow a guess to face, 
Worthy façade’s story lines
Wants find liable to follow,
When soon will depict sign
That yet may end be hollow,
Lest one chances new assign 
Would fit a mesmeric fellow!

Looking in a Blind Mind

                    – the while willing to wait –

A fellowman’s fate
Be in a blind mind,
Short of haste state
For end of the line,
Will reason be late
A welcome assign,
Thus eager to wait
On ploy of resign,
Yet invokes debate
Tho beset inclined,
May assure a place
At end of life's time,
As fellowman’s take
Endures a blind mind,
The while willing to wait!

Alas youth of long days,
be soon elders short nights…

At erudite expression,

Worth of one's own,
Thus, had been sown!

Looking

– for erudite thought –

While eager to find
Endures be sought,
Said sanguine time 
For erudite thought, 
Abides one inclined
By inspired epoque, 
Wants trust defined
Composed as ought,
Optimistic assigned 
Tho may’ve sought,
To acquire consign 
Decidedly brought,
Save deviate minds
Shall suppress not,
Hide merit in kind
Held as calculus lot,
Seek Einstein design!

Looking

        – at image callow –

Holds with time 
We’d look back, 
At images callow
Too soon outlines,
Journey to follow 
Age wouldst find,
Ye hoped mellow
Composed in lines, 
That shan’t forget
Life as man mined,
Fates’ ensuing place 
Hence end of the line, 
Fixed carved on a face
Bound predictably to life!

Looking

           – thru callow eyes –

Bears an auspicious find
As child that learns wise, 
In a world of need rewind
Looking thru callow eyes,
Says can’t be living blind
For aware survival belies,
The risk of a waning mind
Beyond want to sympathise, 
In a state of diminishing time!

Waiting

Waiting

– for death –

In no hurry
Ye can wait,
Its eventual
Find be late,
To inevitable 
Trepidation,
Be temporal
Disassemble,   
No omission
For ye being,
In condition
Thus ensues,
Its imposing
Found abuse,
To fit closing
Save ye know,
Be no waiting
Ye gods bestow,
To alter stating
Time fix for death!
	  Thus so we scribble, to face man’s reality…
