React to Darkness

The world runs around and bucks you

Off your trajectory with minutiea that drive you

Up a wall, and down into darkness which blinds

Your senses that either gives adrenaline or freezes

You into a statue that’s blind, deaf, and dumb.

Your vision turns into bright starts that short-

Circuit your mind with blinding light whose sport

Is to suppress your logic, embracing emotions

That turn you deaf to all evidence against your passions.

Those then steal your ability to speak your mind.

As the world moves round and round, like a merry

Go round, so do you try to stave off the shocks that ferry

You into dismay as experiences are disillusioningly

Petrifying, with their obstacles and demands

On your taking a stand outside your comfort zones.

Stay the course.

Stand tall.

Savor each experience.

Strengthen your faith with failure or success.

Sever negative relationships,

And let your self-confidence emerge

A snow white pigeon of peace and verve of life.

I'm a Canadian whose life has been interesting as I've lived in Developing countries and here. The contrast of law, order, and amenities available to us Canadians (which we take for granted, sometimes) to war torn civil wars is enormous. It leaves an influence upon the soul that cries out for justice. My poetry and writing reflect that and more.
