As Blacken Monsters Paint Themselves As Glowing White, Dedicated to, Ghost Writer

As Blacken Monsters Paint Themselves As Glowing White, Dedicated to, Ghost Writer As darkness wields its deep slashing demonic blades, sanity seems to be malignant tour de force, corruption flows along hiding in wicked shades as malicious malady on a tragic course! One must hold steady if life is true to liven. For we face truth, if sin is to be forgiven. As evil dances in its guises and parades slicing innocent hearts to laugh and watch them bleed, from black abyss, spring such malevolent charades beastly feedings to sate arrogant selfish needs! One must hold steady if life is true to liven. For we face truth, if sin is to be forgiven. As blacken monsters paint themselves as glowing white and too many simply refuse to this farce see, do we flee, abandon others to hidden blight does land race away from the waves of crashing sea? One must hold steady if life is true to liven. For we face truth, if sin is to be forgiven. As life, its beauty, its sweet treasures offer up and our deepest hope and dear dreams are ours to keep, dare we in defiance, from adversity sup or silently yield to darkness, too scared to sleep? One must hold steady if life is true to liven. For we face truth, if sin is to be forgiven. Robert J. Lindley, 2-10-2020 Rhyme, Dedication poem ( A Poetic Answer To Greg Barden's Poem, ("Ghost Writer")

Thank you my friend. In standing for what is right-- one must face the attacks this world always heaps--as well as -- the fact many will turn their backs upon such a principled person. As reality here shows happens now.. Sad but true...

Thank you my friend. To me if one can not be supportive of kind, honest and talented fellow poets why expect civility and such in return. Sad and tragic that some think to build themselves up by way of tearing others down, imho. God bless...

Thank you my friend. In life one must take a stand and also be supportive of what is right. Especially be supportive of friends and fellow poets that see only friendship, peace and a place to commune with others as poetic brothers/sisters. God bless...

Thank you my friend. I have been saddened in the past to see great poets decide to go elsewhere due to the bad behavior and antics of others here. God bless....

Thank you Greg. In our older age , life is too short to not make the most of it. To me poetry is also about fellowship and integrity. This site is by far the best site to find so many very talented poets to learn from. imho. We need here more empathy, more supportive admonitions and less cleverly hidden hostility. God bless.....
