“ Looking ” ~ for serenity ~

 

Looking

For reasons,

Not to suppose,

That by and by

I’ll not dispose,

For me to abide

As I want compose…

 

Looking

At thoughts,

That questions

The soul,

Shadowed in doubt

Yet passing for whole,

When worth I gave

May have dried out,

Hence less than brave

I’ve agonized about,

A premature bide  

In fates grave reside…

 

Looking

To find serenity,

That shan’t confine,

To narrowed time!

 

“ Reasons ” ~ but to justify ~

Reasons,

Simple to find

Easy to give,

Reasons of why

So few live,

For be but excuses

Not worth their uses,

As most rate less

Than gossamer ruses,

And far too many

Neath tenable any,

Be worthy of reason

Save want vindicate

Timorous misoneism,          

Held beyond reason!
