Cowardly Courage

“Man has it all in his hands, and it all slips through his fingers from sheer cowardice.” Fyodor Dostoevsky

To be a coward,

One must:

Fear being changed,

Fear loving it,

Fear beauty,

Fear being hopeful,

Fear the inspirational,

Fear of being an individual,

Fear of being assertive,

Fear of being humane,

Fear of being disruptive,

Fear of being positive.

When all is locked in a chest,

How can you break its best

From solid bonds that need a rest?

Take pride in ‘you’, the ‘person’,

Have faith in yourself and press on,

Knowing that what’s right will live on!

Book Day

Beauty of books leave nothing to imagerY

Overflowing with all that can be imagineD:

Kings, queens, courtiers, all in a booK.

Devils and monsters dancing in affetuosO

Anger and depression dumped in aerophotO

Yet, we vent them in books that only boB.

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.

Listen

Nature’s wonder enhances, amplifies your own
The vibrations of joy and discord implant upon
Nature’s own resources, and reflect them
Back to man, raising their optimism and exuberance.
