A Hope-Sprinkled Truth (We Are The Many) - Poem by Sara Stowell

We are the many
Though never the much

Pastures of plenty
Of this that and such

Planted which ever we never employed
Devoured in hastiest place least enjoyed
Tempted by myths, convicted by creed
Hope withers variety, sanctifies screed

Corporeal divinity enslavement in need
Unholy trinity - fear guilt and greed

This paean to process, this envisaged bloom
Should neatly, compactly fit anyone's room

Gaze at it elevate it up to the light
For what good is righteousness if not for the right?

And the sounds of its silence speak volumes of loud
The usual can't for the usual crowd

What good there is owning us, all that is touched
Our pastures of plenty -grail, staff and crutch

Satisfied, sodden, spirited lush
Forever the many in search of the much.

Each jewel of a thought
A hope-sprinkled truth
A rare diamond sought
But bright, cold, aloof

Outsides appearances
Insides askew
Believing in everything
Trusting damned few

Weaving illusion
And calling it truth
Worshiping image
We desecrate youth
And rumor has it
Though it's rarely been seen
That the facet of loneliness
Lies faceless, between

    I do write instantly
    When I read someone's hart*.
    I read your hart
    Through your chosen phrases.
    That made me happy-
    I do feel i found someone
    Possesses senses like me
    I hope one day we will meet
    Many souls like me and you!
