Don't Just Murmur

Don’t Just Murmur



Are we going to enter the ill-fated whirlpool 
                                  Of unintelligible madness,
And let calamitous folly anchor its obscure ships
                                                       Of destruction,
In our harmonious hearts?


Are we going to follow the discerning star
                                        Of glowing reason,
And allow lustrous wisdom institute its
                                  Simmering dominion,
In our tormented minds?


Are we going to constantly give fortified shelter
                                             To detrimental fears
And permit fatal pessimism establish its 
                                           Depressing presence,                                                             
In our serene lives?


Are we going to evict, detrimental dread, from our
                                    Excruciating consciousness,
And relinquish vivifying optimism to enact its
                                             Invigorating message,
All over our agonizing planet?


Are we going to stand, apathetically still in front 
                                 Of virtue’s constant devastation
And grant, tenebrous vice, permission to grow
                                Its abominable fruit of injustice
In our loving society?


Are we going to become vigorously implicated
                                         In rectitude’s resurrection
By putting up a gallant fight, for the condemnation
                                                          Of dreary crime, 
In our fearful world?


Are we going to let fading belief steadily degenerate
                                                       Our blazing ethics
And permit sinister infamy, build its damnable empire
                                                                   Of anarchy,
In our mystic souls?


Are we going to work, with ever-expanding zeal
                                   To revive glittering morality
By sanctioning compassion and regenerate 
                              Kind-heartedness and order
In our caliginous society?

Are we going to sacrifice illustrious truth on the
                                 Wicked altar of self-interest
And endure venomous lie undisturbed 
                                                                To flourish,
In the midst of us?


Are we going to courageously strive against 
                                         Catastrophic falsehood
By allowing rapturous veracity thrive and 
Within ourselves?


Are we going to remain helpless pray of
                                 Mischievous hatred,
And grand carnivorous war the permit to
                                   Destroy and devour
Life on eternal earth?


Are we going to transform ourselves to 
                                               Charitable giants,  
And give birth to everlasting peace and
                                          Ever-enduring love
For every fellow living being?


If your choice is the latter, my loving
Then, Don’t just murmur but
