Blister in the heart

A blister in the heart Like walking blindfolded into a minefield You skirmish and elbow your diligent way Like a house of cards that collapses You endure anguish and stitch If some would erect walls When the wind of change blows Keep your soul aloft Rather set up windmills. Dispel crippling doubts Show away deleterious thoughts Into a devoted scavenger Rock the Casbah and strut through the grounds. Woo your grief with quotes, Solicit your heart for a haunting ballad Aim high away from your clutter Never harbor any stifling grudge Trust your heart even if it skips a beat Animal trainers' daring is at last explicit As long as they-in their iron cage - Are sequestered from human animosity We will unmistakably all meet our Waterloo For cure-all pills are defunct and nonexistent So do whatever floats your boat As long as it doesn't sink others Above all,remember it isn't over Till the fat lady sings We are all Jock Tamson's Bairns, On the same boat perpetuate life You may take my words with a pinch of salt, why not ? Blisters do pester yet never annihilate, Vestal virgins easily succumb to temptations, And do even relapse....... My son,my alter ego ....
