Biography of Albert Ahearn
I am a rogue poet that rarely follows traditional poetic form. I write for my own pleasure only, not for consensus.
I am intelligent and eccentric. I can be profound or profane. I dance to the beat of one drum- the drum that I created.
I know what love is but I am confounded by hate. I believe in a higher order of things; at the same time, I am repelled by false tenets and promises that the gullible majority is fettered to.
I believe that independence and individual achievement enable society to survive and thrive. I dismiss faith and hope beyond empirical reason-the kind that makes an independent, free-thinking mind feeble.
Erato whispered in Man's ears
poetic words that he could hear;
they are ancient as Greece itself
which became Man's only real wealth.
Aeschylus heard her wordy waves
that sparked his tragedian plays.
Her soft words waft Man's atmosphere
producing a William Shakespeare.
Today her words still ride the wind
