Poetic Stance…


"The Poet"

"The Poet"

What are we but one person among the masses
Who long to gleam in the perfect light of love and beauty
If we were without our poetic stance

In the presence of darkness, absent of direction
Our spirits merge with the judgment of the majority
To be accepted by the so-called acceptable

But alas, we are the newest amalgamation of our time
The technically creative and the disgustingly beautiful – poets

We should surely waste away in servitude to the green master
And the mundaneness of sustaining daily life
If not for the creativity that feeds our being with passionate dreams

Oh, those poetic dreams are sustenance to my soul
While I purposely search for a greater purpose
Between making a living
