i walk

Cash for clothes
Unnecessary materials 
As we sell our souls 

Fleeing from thought 
Believing in lies
Forgetting the struggles 
We walk to our demise

Words of wisdom tampered
Action dictated by the sinister
The truth shattered in confusion
Between you, the world, and the minister
Revel to your hearts drum, and your heart’s only

Believe men can conquer Giants
In face of wickedness do not become frail
Stand strong, thought inflexible  
Knowing that you will prevail 

Wean your mind of the world’s cloth
Fear not rains or winds blown
Contentment rests within
Then, you shall “Walk on your own”

    Surely we "walk to our demise" when we fail to "Revel to our heart's drum." The world can make us crazy, James, but your poem inspires us to believe we have the strength to "conquer Giants." Very insightful. Excelleing writing! Love, Carolyn
