Severe Sense of Humor


I had to walk across
all the sorrows fate had stored for life
I was shot down
by all the unprecedented and sudden strikes.

I stood for a while(and)
rued all the miscalculated mishaps
touched the certain parts of my canvas.
I walked away with a stern smile.

Almighty seems to have
a sense of humor
very practical, very majestic
yet somehow interestingly severe.

A severe sense of humor
a thought to savor
somehow seems almost
human behavior.

Yet divine is the word
magnified sense of divinity
gives us a less fogged view
belief is much better than scrutiny.

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
