Living Lie Current Version 0845 - Poem by Jonathan ROBIN

Poetic inspiration can't run dry,
expectations entertains, cannot
live in half-light, cuts the gordian knot
dividing consciousness from inner eye.
No compromises ever satisfy
exacting standards that reject as blot,
secondary lot where, half forgot,
convictions pale are held to not apply.
Hesitation is a living lie
most men accept to ease their daily rot,
time-trap snapped shut once only bolt is shot.
Try who will, few still find wings to fly.
Thus when two meet, see differences dissolve,
empathy Earth's mysteries may solve.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

for previous version entitled title Hesitation is a Living Lie

He whose inspiration won't run dry
Expectations entertains, cannot
Live in half-light, cuts the gordian knot
Encompassing the spirit's inner eye.
No compromises here can satisfy
Exacting standards which accept no blot,
Secondary lot where, half forgot,
Convictions fade, men fondest hopes deny.
Hesitations are a living lie
Most men accept to ease their daily rot.
It is a time-trap. Once the bolt is shot
Try who will, few find the wings to fly.
Thus when two meet, see differences dissolve,
Harmony Earth's mysteries can solve.

(20 June 1997)
