“ Puzzling ” ~ with longevity ~

Not for a life time

But of time alive,

Fate holds be mine

To explore demise,

As nature’s design

Of erudition drive,

For a human assign

In a complex devise,

Be suspect durability

That we want define,

Ceding be its brevity

Ought facilitate mind,

For its one only life

In a scant fix of time,

Has man ever puzzling

Till he realized best not find,

He was born to indeterminate end

With longevity be as fate so inclines!

“ Without Boundaries ” ~ believed freedom ~

 

Boundless said free

Tho man soon found,

Ways to get round

Freedom he’d born,

Hence so to barter

For fistful of coin,

As greedy kings hold

Land’s realm be soul,

If crown be in peril

Man too has a role,

With boundary control

Of guised reason to war,

While yet he’ll exploit

Thru profiteer knaves,

Who’d whore any border

For all that says trades

Of whatever man craves,

Within the free boundaries

Thus till believed freedom,

Holds sovereign no more!

 

“ Looking ” ~ from inside out ~

Looking

From inside out,

I see a face

Has me in doubt,

Though I know

It’s me inside and out,

I fail discern

This face be so,

As one I’d worn

The many years

Since I was born…

 

As lines of time

In crags so shape,

Thus bared façade

Conjures adverse,

Allows one see

Life be perverse…

 

Hence though I gaze

With woeful eyes,

The while I fantasize

At once arresting face,

Now to imagine wise

Mind so disguised

That I should visualize,

Looking from outside in!
