“ Wanting To Know ” ~ all that I should ~

 

I wanted to know

All I ought sow

Witless I could,

Said thus to grow

As I hence would,

Mentally held so

From a first step,

To fractured words

Not yet understood,

In retrospect

Held become clear,

Though I await

The while I fear,

Awaited wisdom

Trusted appear,

Vacates my recall

From coveted keep,

Be prized most of all…

 

Alas where to go

From so long ago,

Attempt find whom

Had gotten to know,

Or who might tell

Not long yet gone,

Tho likely in hell

As I may as well,

Try wanting to know,

Now all that I should!

 

“ My World ” ~ in retrospect ~

 

What will be left

In retrospect,

Held be my world

Of living things,

Unenviable at best,

Since we allowed

To risk their nest,

Piloted by men

Of gargantuan rapacity,

Apathetic to amend…

 

Thus for unwary child

Who finds not heed,

How will he survive

Man’s destructive seed,

Souring the air he breathes!
