Sagacious words

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

A Toast to the Tears

Of knowing the difference
between light and shade-
The beginnings of endings
that move closer to the grave.
Fighting the unleashed demons
until the very last breath-
The struggle of discordant voices
and colours vying for good health;

These are the conversations played
into horrors mutated and muted-
And the brainwashing of innocents
is then thoroughly completed.
The ways of the wanderer
are always corrupt and deviant-
And the search for inner peace
leads often to worldly bereavement.

A toast to the tears of validation
under the glare of deep disapproval-
The soul works for mass adulation
fighting through for constant approval.
Smouldering below the aspirations
of all highly strung superiors-
The world has constantly denied
what lies beneath all our exteriors.
