The poem(s) are below...




Great suffering bleeds into maudlin thoughts 
Then anguish sets in concrete synapses, hardening, 
into rigid implacable bonds.

Within the change no comfort remains
Ideas wept in sorrow from yesterday's sadness
explode onto new foundations
and for some, greatness is achieved.

Driven by crater impacts on the psyche. 
They dig their way out and in the climb, 
change the world and all mankind  

Less damaged souls, fulfill the roles
of authors of the written scrolls
that record history.

From nearby we hear faint calls to those 
(living their stones of a supine life)
to rise above their daily discord
and sense the passion alone from those
who ascended above their intrepid woes
to create vibrant colors seldom seen.
