Chants of the Somber Spirit

'The mind is imprinted with catchy melodies, distraught images, and all-too-human desires, ' voiced the Spirit.
'How to free yourself you say?
Well, the consciousness flow
Begins when you let go.
To remain placid and without motion
observe the ocean away from digitized commotion.'

Where can one remain like Swans of a pond,
gliding graciously upon the terrain,
with utmost complacence, becoming one with the very nature preserving them?
Pave your path brothers and sisters of the Mother Earth.
Arm yourselves once more.
Peace can only ever be attained through War and Death.
Resistance has not challenged or opposed.
Awaken from your living slumber!
Live for the sake of Life! '

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
