Whines Before Wine


Lets say its outrageous and forget about it..
lets say its gorgeous and swarm around it..
lets say its stupendous and incarcerate our imaginations from it..
lets say its contagious and abhor it...
lets say its incredulous and adore it...

opinions back and forth like a see saw..
obviously what you see is not what the visionary saw..
blips yank at optimism and rip it off our ways...
whips of the superficial scourge our reasoning..
we convict ourselves with mental treason..

Why don't we just quit sailing the seven seas for reasons...
why don't we open the introspective door and find THE REASON..
the reason being there is no reason, no season when you can or cannot excel..
There is just you, your FAITH in the ALMIGHTY... and the power of the will you posses..
Open your soul to the fact that you have no other choice than to posses....

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
