+ Fav Poet


I am practicing with my intent at hand
Past the clouds of confusion that try to engulf my thoughts
Sensible to the moral of the insensible
Gathering the gladiators of the intellect 
They’re boundless in spiritual nature
I have fought back in the foggy fields and never truly faltered
This intractable ascent beckons my drive further
The nature of understanding the minds voices
They call to reach at times with a melodious character
Keeping at pace this time so measured that I occupy
Knowingly If I should hear its doubt cast its calling
My focus shall be wasted and bewildered
So I autodidact my philological mind in the lesson of will
Reaching the steps of change within reason 
Never to forsaking the trip  

(Inspired by “In search of the human mind contest” )
 By The rambling poet
