“ Sway ” ~ just enough ~

Sway

Just enough

To give hope a ray,

Sway

A bit more

To let me find

The way,

Sway

Then again,

To so compose

You’d have me stay,

Sway

Fate might fix

Life be with love

More than a day,

Sway

To find share

Destined replete

Be criteria’s fare,

Sway

Life be free

Of bent aspirants,

And political tyrants,

Sway

Alas man finds

Give life to dreams,

Barring nightmare,

If incubi, succubi be there

For ones held pleasures!

“ Every Road ” ~ a reinvention ~

 

Every road taken

Kindles desire,

Of maturate daring

Destiny inspires,

Held life reinventing,

Tho countless roads

Oft-times shadowed

By clouds of undoing,    

Man’s inner-child begs

For ways to discern

Every road said,

Wouldst find reinvention!

“ The Have and The Have Naught ” ~ be life’s comedy ~

The have naught, ebb

With life a tragedy,

Trapped in a web

Of apathetic reality,

Man will so scheme

Endemic of betrayal,

To attain his means…

 

Ergo haves, we may agree

Live pithily said comedy,

For they especially                                      

Of careless objectivity,

Destine their domain

In animate fantasy,

Suffering not inequity

The while feign humane!

“ A Breath ” ~ to say goodbye ~

 

Ever gently

Reaching to soothe,

The pain’s excess,

Eager her touch

Allays his agony,

To so delay

A waning breath,

That will not stay

Life’s cruel erosion,

Beyond the day,

While once more

Yet grasp he may,

Beyond fate’s reach,

‘Tis far too close

To death’s approach,

For destiny’s concede

Of one more breath,

Tho but to say goodbye!

                                                                                    ode to a young father

                                                                                    and younger mother,

                                                                                    when life was shorter…

 

“ Fate ” ~ in Hades’ shadow ~

 

Why hold fate

Should so dictate

Our destiny,

With utter power

In its wake

To give or take,

Lest we viewed chose

Our own volition…

 

Why need fate hide

In Hades’ shadow

To do its bidding,

Meant so condemn

To undue end

Without fulfilling,

Just observance…

 

So go your way,

Of fate I say

Not of our making,

I’ll have my life

And live it as I may!
