Paradigm - Poem by ENOCH JOHN

Captured dreams unfold like hidden mysteries
In the quiet latent stillness of the twilight hour,
As many gather their scattered thoughts about them
And sit curled up and hidden away
From the blistering wind of doubt
That blows its fury on the outside world!
So come then, let's exercise the passion of faith
As the roving adversary in his tracks, we stop!
Stalwarts of the faith assemble at point's destiny,
Building bulwark in the line of duty
That counteracts oppressive forces and adversity!
A paradigm of life that sometimes puzzles;
Itself complicated by its own simplicity,
Of why fools around in darkness stumble
Forever confused in their folly blatant!

In the never ending riddle of life's hazardous journey
Numerous paradigms silently unfold their ghastly tentacles
Like gigantic grey octopuses scattered around the ocean's
untidy floor
Ready to grab and devour their full of unsuspecting prey
And gobble them up forever into their deep and murky insides
Like a hungry quagmire in the angry desert sand!
