Wisdom's Clarity Lost

Trapped in a quagmire existence
Mind over matter has shattered
The real becomes imaginative
Spinning in a hurricane of confusion

Extinct thoughts plunder reality
As tangible objects beseech memories bold
Reaching for the unattainable
With blinded eyes and deafened ears

Clarities benevolence escapes reach
When death the heart does breach
Wisdom to know the difference 
Lost in the murky waters of grief

    Thanks, Debra, am glad you found my poem inspirational. Wisdom that comes from God is the best wisdom of all. Man thinks he's so wise, but little does he know......Love, Maureen

    Clean the cobwebs from your mind. And in the morning you will find, that what you thought in your darkest hour. Sanity removed with a defogging shower.

    When we let ourselves become so mired in grief that we are literally drowning and life seems to lose it's meaning, this is the true meaning of the word, "despair". Despair is a sin because it means you have lost your faith. Despair is the loss of hope and without hope you have no faith in anything. You must never allow anything to do that to you because it puts a wall between you and God and Jesus came to tear down that wall. A fine write. Good entry for the conntest. God Bless, JB

    Very descriptive writing. One of the more imaginative entries I've seen recently.
