“ Grieving ” ~ time neglected ~

I grieve for time

Passing unseen,

Tho anxiously

I try redeem,

An absurd task

Held be a dream,

Behind the mask

That only seems,

To assuage its fear

Now less than keen, 

When down the line

Reality holds clear,

That life I left behind

Actualizes many years,

Yet neglected tell my mind

There be life beyond the tears,

For obtusely squandered designs

That has me grieving, now ill timed!

“ Beyond Reach ” ~ a voice too far ~

I can scarce hear

A voice too far,

Now beyond reach

Undoubtedly fading,

Thusly I fear

I’ll find in time,

The voice that died

Must have been mine,

For shout or screech

No one appears,

Who can tell I am not here

And thus beyond reach,

Too far to see or hear!

“ Fear Of Living ” ~ wants summon courage ~

 

The fear of living

Encouraged flight,

Or demands fight

To wrestle demons

Who cheat us of light,

Wants summon courage,

For hedonistic life…

 

Ergo be rid

Of inertia’s bid

And reinstate daring,

Lest fear of living

Be injudicious

Allows destroy,

The whole of being…

 

Thus need objectives

Not be swayed,

By the proverbial theys

Who so feign credence

Invoking so, they say,

Be without reference 

Save lamentable staids,

Life hath so daunted

Would hold fear of living!
