Introspection
I I write because I’m aware of the fact 
I’m losing time
I’m Struggling to gain insight 
In a world that’s blind
Outlining the blueprint 
that’s stuck in my mind
Acting with a reason
And intention to rhyme
An intention...

Generic germane groveling guy still wallows in Weltschmerz
Yours truly does readily confess
the following poem crafted more or less
approximately a year ago,
when coronavirus (COVID-19)
wrought havoc creating global mess
when panic against collective temple did press
a feeling of melancholy and world-weariness.

Generic germane guy wallows in Weltschmerz
Along luscious green acres banks steep grade

Petticoat Junction) naturemade

verdant landscape displayed

proto human) arrayed

solely donning birthday suit,
whose fifty plus shades hair gone grayed,

For election day 2016
When I think about this year 
and all the stories that we hear
of Clinton's crimes, and Trump's remarks,
and how the media embarks

on efforts to distort the truth –
it makes me want to be the sleuth

Touched By Madness
In a day when mental illness 
was hidden behind a closed door,
A young girl lived but wished to die;
 she couldn't take it anymore.

No one knew the pain she suffered;
always wondering how it would end.

For such a time as this: 

…when enhanced community quarantine
causes angst, grievously torturing…

...when lockdown brings ennui
of senseless boredom that seems to be forever…

In the same way that a mother when she loses her child. Ask and cry out to God, WHY?

TIME
Time
Nothingness in it belies
A continuum, uncanny
In all lives it defines
Love, hate, rage and litany

A motion on its own
Sweeping, inescapable
A yardstick mankind bemoans
Perpetual journey, irreversible

It’s life’s anathema
Yet it counts life
It’s a thing of enigma
That heaven had...

For SR
Splendiferous, once was love;
it’s heights a peak of madness:
A burning need, a flow’ring seed
blooming with passion’s delight.

Differences seem to balance.
Weaknesses offset by strength.
A missing part connects two hearts,
Imperfect, but now complete

Hope and dreams unimagined
take root...

With God’s omnipotence that does attest His wondrous might

While fighting valiantly transgressions’ filthiness…
