Every drawn breath
exhale past seasons’ virtues,
gives wind to sail ship
A virtue caterpillars learn before its prime
Sold and foretold by those deemed wise,
misunderstood to thems of severed ties.
How water soften blunt stones’ callous edge,
years by eons of unconditional pledge
What is love to crashing waves against undeserving sands?
Patience is what grace all lost lands
Familiar stranger, yet curious guise
How you’ve shaken me by surprise
What brought thy here to this moment in space
At which speeds were you and I’s pace?
For none elevates us beyond such states,
nor strung compulsion to sweet enigmatic fate.
So long, farewell. Let’s meet again
with wind’s guidance we’ll catch up then.
Straights and turns, winds led astray
Impatience drove this love to sway
Darkened and wild, I became
Sanctity set aflame to resist its tame.
O’ clever soul, trust Truth’s faithful bond
None remains, too what’s most fond
Still weary grows, as does bore
Awaiting thee to wash ashore
As we break off all jagged and rough,
forget the means of being enough
Until light sought is from within
Divinity shan’t allow what shouldn’t begin
What significance of colliding stars
unless lessons to be learned of what force we are.
Let depths take root for enlightenment to reach
Through peaceful breath allow wisdom to breach.
Just be, BE.
whispers Sacred – to me
Have desires of nothings fill the heart
to be love, one could never be apart
Now shall we dance with buoyancy?
—- Oh tugging wind, please leave my spirited free..
How clearly mistaken your worldly dues!
Opened my eyes and there stood… you
Strangers again, indeed, once more
“How did you come upon this shore?”
Nothing familiar recognized by the I
yet Sacred never seem to lie.
“How twos always meet in this dubious game,
when two become one of the same.”
“Right”, Eye smiled, requited such pineal gaze
Best of luck through ins and outs of this maze
Nothing lasts forever, learned times before
Thus, I’ll travel several eons to be

Join me humans, robots, and associates in our marvel and appreciation for spoken word poetry. personal favorites (continuously updated):

Lil Lit to sustain yo spirits:
“I have remained true to my deepest convictions, I mean to the courage of those who are born to be defeated, the weaknesses of the strong, and the tragedy of misunderstandings and missed opportunities, which I have done my best to treat as comedy, for otherwise how can we manage to bear it?”
