Elements Of Inspiration - Poem by Sheldon Allen Saluta

Embrace tightly the Fire
to burn-out all the doubts
that may trigger the negativity devour one’s life,
to lit up the seraphly confidence
in facing new trials and strife,
to consume the inner and hidden passion
that may helps one’s life triumphing the summit,
to ablaze the heart
in initiating the jurisdiction of ethics in each entity.

Quaff the stillness of Water
to drain the sorrowful memories
and makes it a medium to beacon success,
to clear the mind from skeptical thoughts
that may destruct one’s methodical plans,
to crystallize the fast-approaching future
and build a better future for one’s dependents
to thaw the ice inside the heart
that may block the aisle of one’s fortune.

Grasp the ghastly current of Wind
to blow highly in top the one’s prerogatives
ensuing each schematic objective,
to refresh the unseemly soul from inhuman morality
that makes blurring impurity quench savagely,
to unwind from devastating mixture of ease
letting one’s attention drown in ease,
to ventilate from the steepness of life
that makes the chamber of hopes boosts in climb.

Capture the enormity of Earth
to harden one’s foundation with great valor
that may emancipate from the cage of weakness,
to solidify the vehement of eagerness
that may eradicate the realm of fret,
to recycle fallacies in life into better
that may helps in altering intellectual, emotional and spiritual growth
to strengthen one’s dignity
that may fend in terms of judgment.

These are the Elements
that give such inspiration.
