Sagacious words

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. ~ Khalil Gibran

Chasm of Eternity

To see the light
Through eyes of faith
In the darkest of nights
Is the work of the heart
For every soul,
A chasm of eternity
Within its depths does hold
Of fallen people and their tears
In their hopes and their fears
Is a limelight in the most
Squalid and unexposed
Theatres of change.
Where gossiping ways
Always mask and shield
Blisters of shame,
The skills of listening
And the gifts of understanding
Are the only things to destroy pain.
The walk of life's rope,
Rests on the balance between
Fickle exteriors and antidotes
And even more fragile inner worlds
Which are held together
By mere intentions and words.

- J.Bibi
