Sagacious words

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

The walls of community that hold and crucify-
The structures of family that protect and suffocate;
These are the recurrent dilemmas of the ages,
Which work when inspired by the words of Sages,

All moments of clarity lose the tinge of freshness,
When hollow victories bring inevitable exposure;
As grown men play dangerous games for power,
And bring apocalyptic times forever closer.

All the aberrations of the cruel and the greedy,
Soon become ugly manifestations of horrid fantasy
And in every society treat the old with dignified care
And towards the young bestow a just and loving flair,
These moments will stealthily become the days of old,
Before we know it, we all too will be forever out cold.
