The fire that chokes,
The sea of twisted brambles that scratch and tear,
The restless tempest of the wandering wind,
The broken glass that serrates and severs,
The jagged blade that plunges deep into Precious Life,
All shambles of disarray and turmoil,
Lies and fodder to feed the foolish.
Wake, O Most Beloved One!
See the Dawn!
Hear the Harmonious Choir of Birdsong
That Pours forth its Praise upon the Morning
And Do Not Let Your Heart Be Captured
By the Ruthlessness of Night;
For in that Darkness,
Where Serpents Sing and Demons Serenade,
The Calamity of Uncertainty plays upon Doubt,
Only to Destroy.
Wake, O Most Beloved One!
See the Rising Day!
And Let Your Heart Sing as a Clear and Strident Trumpet Call
Unto the Gleaming Hope that Beckons.

Lift Your Head,
O Sullen Joy;
Weep not for Loss,
Despair to Employ.
Visualize a Perfect Tomorrow
Shatter Grief and Darkest Sorrow.
Raise Your Eyes,
O Saddened Heart;
Let not Unworthy
Close Your Eyes to Doubt and Fear,
Let Sweet Compassion Draw you Near.
Open Your Arms
To Abiding Love;
Most Precious Gift
From Fair Heaven Above.
Listen not to Viperous ruse and lies,
Soar above deception, where Honesty Abides.
Receive this Gift,
Pure Treasure, not token;
Mending Your Faith
When once it lay broken.
Raise your Hope in the vast starkness,
And Shatter the Grip of Encroaching Darkness.

There in the shadows of Illusionary Calm,
Marked by Mute Pain and Liberal balm,
The Heart that Resides in the drifting array
Of Stars Far from Home, bleeds every day.
Capture the Moment of Intrinsic Time
That questions the Birth of Harmonious Rhyme,
And let not the Pallor of Fear overshadow
or devise lies that will steal Joy and harrow.
Mark the Good Morrow of Winsome Light
That Sails in the Winds of Unbroken Night,
Raise your Banner in the Infinite Breeze
And Smile at the Echo of Laughter it Frees.
Sing in the Merry Halls of Blazing Glory,
And never look back at the unfinished story
Of loneliness and hidden tears,
Of long hallow Moments and shapeless years.
Awaken to the Glimmer of Newest Day,
Answer to all those Pleas that you Pray,
And Walk into Promise that Infinitely Sings,
That Gives Newest Life, that Bears you up on its Wings.
Tomorrow is Hidden, Today is Truth,
Sparkling Joy in Unquestioning Proof
That Love Stands Fast, Ever Waiting it’s Chance,
Even after falling under Cruelty’s Lance.
Rejoice and be Immeasurably Content,
For Love Remained while the world was rent
And twisted, turning upside down,
And Love dried the tears of your most bitter frown.

Lost in the Arc of Your Swirling Love,
Your Tempests, Gales and Fiery Storms,
I Stand in Awe and Stare
While the Symphony of my Affection Forms
Poetry as Sweet as Honey
Flowing from the Luscious Tree,
Like the Nightingale filled with Song
I Sing, Unhindered, Clear and Free,
While all around the world stands Mute,
Accosted by its own false trying
To Impress beyond its flagrant means,
Its Promises filled with Smiles, Lying.
O Trust not those Lures that Tempt Your Love,
For they are naught but Silken Ruse,
Trust only this, Blessed from Above,
Which Perjures not, nor does confuse,
For by this Love I know Your Heart,
And by This Love You Shall Know Mine,
Unmatched in this world’s Bitter Plane,
Together Beating in Perfected Time.

In Spectral Silence you come
Whispering in Flagrant Tones,
Of All my failings, fears and lies,
Of All I pour on Heaven’s Throne.
Like hissing serpent’s Symphony
You chide, berate and shower gloom,
Laughing in repugnant Glee
As you watch my foolish doom.
Yet this Heart knows Love and has Tested Well
Sweet Friendship in Pure Honesty,
And Though Flames May pour from the Gates of Hell,
The Light of Truth shall Set Me Free.

Yet it is Deep Transgression against my heart,
This Exhalation that is so Calming,
So Soothing, So Lovely;
Expressing Passionate Delight, Poignant Distraction, and Blissful Reverie,
Does it Dare betray the Longing and Deep Yearning of my Soul?
Haunting, Viperous, Murderous Lies!
Bitter, caustic, irreparable travesty
That shatters my Thoughts into a thousand jagged pieces
And Laments in my tears of the Loneliness I wear.
O Heavy Mantle!
Poison to my Joy!
Peril to my Laughter!
For if any should guess;
If any could See Beyond this porcelain mask I wear,
Hiding the True Identity of my Emotion,
They would Surely See a Gaunt and Haggard Soul,
A Breaking Heart living each day with the torment of Lies,
And the Treachery of Duplicity.
O Vile Deceit and Guile Walking Hand in Hand with Me!

What is Right?
What is Wrong?
Who Answers when the Night is Long?
What is Purpose?
What is Sacrifice?
How Do we Measure Truth when Entrenched in Lies?
Who Should Know?
What Should be Said?
Will Our Actions Heal or Leave Souls Dead?
All for You or All for Me?
(I am not a political activist on any level and rarely make any sort of political statement, however, after watching several highlights and interviews regarding the soon to be released movie “The Fifth Estate”, these words tumbled forth and begged to be shared.)
