Confucius Says - Poem by Sujay Sam

Confucius says, "Never long for what could have been"
To live as I favour; for my free will still remains
Yet salt that loses flavour can never be salty again.
How can their love lost be for their own gain?

Confucius says, "Brighter is the shine of a lonesome star"
Yet tiresome is the journey with none companions beside;
For it is a friend who helps one shed his own scars.
And no lonesome star shines where Hell's angel resides.

Confucius says, "Home is where the heart is"
So is a broken heart an offspring of a broken home?
You see them shattered and they've come to you in pieces;
Is this peace just another calm before the storm?

Confucius says, " When there is a will, there is a way"
Yet a fascist is always the one to pave the path;
To seek, to destroy and to lead their hearts astray.
As they're a trumpet call away from a divine wrath.

Confucius says, "Experience is the greatest master. "
Could I not learn from the choices of a predecessor?
Why can't one not hope to earn a living that pays?
Because frankly, I really don't care what Confucius says.
