Sagacious words

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

Broken trust

So the greasy path is betrayed
And with treacherous certainty-
The imminent end is fully displayed

As scavenging hyenas circle with cowardly lust
And growing tornadoes begin to ravage destruction-
Compelled by the furious aftermath of broken trust-

The savage winds of derision claim ground
And the interfering blades of self doubt cut clear-
Diminishing the fresh glow of power new-found.

As the mountains grow ominously bigger-
Through the forests of regret and pain
And towards redemption the heart staggers.

The fruits blossom on the branches of the tree
Of nurtured wisdom and understanding-
The tastes of which enable, the enslaved to feel free.
