Arise! From life To life Tempering the rage of your bleeding sub-conscious When polar opposites of soul and sin Unite in wanton misery Look then, to see when golden rays beseech groans In yawns. When body rises to greet half-dead, It's house of will and intellect. The curse of woe penetrates to dusk, It's perennial grief and silence thus: To drink your sweat when work's undone For months of sweat brags not a cup The days of silence is a hunt and predator of skillful deeds vapourised into the ink Of printed accolades Which feed but a bowl to conscience of pondering negativity What makes a man in disaster? His lording desire over aching tears, the pillars upon which Vision lies in dimming skies Rising once more, I adjust the tunes of discord; daily hobby: Disastrous life in lockdown spent A revived will, forsaken dreams, repents!
