Perceptions - Poem by Sara Militello


One must take the world
as it is found.
Yet, is the victim crying in the dust
aware of the part he plays
to make of his life what he must?
Our Gods are only what we conceive
speak also in tongues we use to deceive.
It's at once our Selves they express
as well address.
We blunder most when most we must chill
and cover our guilt with vehement will.

And though we blame the planets or our God,
for much that goes amiss,
it's back to us the scepter must pass
as our image melts into glass.

June 30,1994
