A Thought Poetry

A Thought

Throughout all of life, planted are many an evil seed, 
giving birth to sick souls, feeding their need
to control, with many a lost spirit – all it doth feed !,
missing the essence of humanity – is greed !, 
while others, with hearts so large, give their all
where nothing is too big, nor is it to small. 
From grace, they will, surly, never fall
and among mankind they will surely stand tall.

All power, some want, and want to control 
the minds of their followers as they stroll 
blindly into the arms of an organized religion, 
becoming pawns, for this religious affiliation, 
that for man, for society, is not, but an abomination,
destroying the hearts and souls of man, of creation.
Where will we be ?, with their world saturation    
and their attempts at political domination.

Dreams – in poetic expressions,
are but the souls of one’s confessions 
of desires realized, of desires dreamt,
of life that would pre-empt
all that is mundane
all that would drive one insane

    Good morning Skat : “ what a powerful thought and poem ........ enjoyed :) LOVE ~SKAT~ ” , for which I am most grateful my Dear, your comments have eased my doubts about having posted “ September 11th 2001, Epilogue and A Thought ”, for they resurrects the stupidity, the hatred, the insanity associated with that event and time and it might have been to heavy, but after reading your comments and some of your fabulous, heart wrenching poem “ Girl Interrupted-, Broken ~Suicidal Night~, To all the heartbreakers- -a valentine poem- Wouldn't you rather~ “ Like the Towers that collapse, and left one big shattered shrine. ” I no longer have those doubts and I like your use of that event to describe the depths of your heart ache – a compilation of the world’s heartache, for the massacring of life / love in your case ?, such a potent metaphor !!! Love Bill . ( B. J. “A” 2 )
