When A Poet Fades - - Poem by Josh Alfred

I struggle everyday with my pen in hand,
I take a little break, but I'm still writing
Everywhere I go, the more I understand.

All that I know, I put onto paper.
I express my soul, and that of the earth's.
Changing my own perspective daily
I take note of the beauty in the dull.
I am blinded from inspiration rarely,
For I see the world in full.

But to see such a world can be a burden
For the world goes beyond words sometimes.
What am I to do when complexity is heightened,
When no words reprimand the beauty I find?

With what words then will I write with,
What echoes of my spirit will do nature justice?
I see now the world isn't meant for saving,
In petty words, of wisdom.
Beauty must be found with out craving,
Eternally, for a new expression.

Lust must be exchanged for love,
And love must be relationship,
So when I see things around and above,
I must know them as I know myself.

When I know the world like a friend
My writing will end,
For then I will never be lost
With company of complete content.
