Restless Inner Solitude

Restless Inner Solitude

 

Alone amongst others

lost in a crowd

alienated without choice

friendless with no voice

killing time alone

Despondent

Despondent

 

Crushed once more

as flotsam and jetsam

used and re used

as a kitchen cloth

generosity freely given

abused with a wince

a discarded wine bottle

no longer of value

recycled humanity

I could not...

batter the rigging of a ship tossed about by fear

Then we stumble into the tranquility of the waiting doldrums

where mother nature settles the ocean to that of a pond

We are aghast by the stark reality of drought,

Free Thinkers

Free Thinkers

 

Humanity is its own manipulator

in complete defiance of its creator

Life becomes institutionalised

yet sadly seldom realised

Religions and Ideologies do confuse

as they inspire many and enthuse

Institutions are man made

with foundations badly laid

They aim to control and indoctrinate

and are frequently the sources of much hate

Winds of Freedom

Winds of Freedom

 

O random air with such celestial flair

do take me from all this daily care

I caress you for a flight of freedom

to a new and perfect blessed kingdom

 

Blow me on a breeze of liberty

releasing me from all temporal misery

Take me to another yet distant place

free from this infernal terrestial place

 

May I share your breeze so light

to carry ...
