Similarity

28 Aug

Similarity

 

Belief & truth.

Not always the same.

Offender” & criminals.

Always to blame?

The hand that feeds you-

Does not essentially nurture.

Truth in life?

None, or frankly obscure.

Hope & faith?

Similar at best.

Certainty in reason?

Give it a rest.

The Wake Of The Raven

27 Aug

Depression by Vesuvia on http://www.deviantart.com

I can not live in the shadows of statues built of the men that have come before me

I cannot uplift what is pinned at every corner with nail, hammer, and bow

I can not un-glamour the eyes of those lost to false vision of materials of beauty

I can not out weigh the measures of every excessively heavy man nor is it my duty

I shall not dive to the depths of Tartarus to save the soul of commons

I do not wish to be forgiven for thoughts I’ve bared forgotten

For I to breathe in itself is a dainty task

Ne’er do I deserve it, nor did I ask

A wretch in jewels endowed with rich garment praised in sanction

A poor womans cry unpitied but astonishingly always forsaken

In this the wake in that our seed grows

In glass full emptied ne’er chances they never will know

Smite thy children, burn thy frail bone

Halt in wake of the raven where nothing feels and no one knows

Reason

27 Aug

Reason

Propose a toast to valor

welcome marauders of reason,

the condescending scholar,

voices of treason.

Three & a half cheers to freedom-

Shameless praises to the red.

Damn you who see them,

and you, who wish they were dead.

Wave our flag high & free.

Black list our leader.

This country is of thee

& you be the bottom feeder.

You watched a documentary.

You earned tour days.

Convinced them this wasn’t meant for me-

Those are your ways.

Spread steadfast cunning & hate-

Chaos is of the mind

Tranquility you debate.

You’re just wasting time.

Drown in your breath.

Seek knowledge in the pitch.

Wear white to your death-

All banging all bark.

You to I, them to we.

Us to that, this you see?

Of course you don’t understand, you refuse to know.

Why pick clarity over a hard way to go?
