World Flipped Over

Only Where The Up Smacks Up Against The Down

Or Whence Opposites Can No Longer Avoid The Inevitable Pull

Senses Cloud Over

Many Voices Ringing Out, Ever So Loud

My Feeble Attempts to Discern between the Wisdom and Madness

Amidst the Cacophony.


The Struggle To Find, Yet Alone Walk a Straight Line

A Sea of Influences, Yet it seems a Rudderless Boat

Stubborn Soul Continues to Wander among the many Shadows

Night Does Eventually Give Way to The Dawn, then The Promise of New Days

The Never Ending Search for Clarity, perhaps an Improbable Utopian Flavoured

A Place with Never Ending Falls of Enthusiasm,  Impossible to Wane

  1. “…Never Ending Falls of Enthusiasm…” I like this, it balances out the uncertainty and confusion you portray in the rest of the piece. For never ending, it is a good ending. 🙂

      I’m Still Learning The Craft of Poetry, I’m certain that I Could be 90 and Writing and Never Entirely Feel Secure.
      Always that of if Ezra Pound Could would read this back in the Day, How Quickly Would It Take to Devour Me?
