2011

sonnet #9
2011

safe within my own tame shell
of hollow counterfeit dreams
like stricken polluted streams
living in a lonely hell
of cold dated memories
and those that wait to be lived
a brave new path not followed
for fear of uncertainties
my long pained search for meaning
Christ! what a poor sad mess-up!
time for a real deep wake up
a fresh start keenly seizing
as the sun sets it rises
a year for new horizons

Painful Writing

sonnet #11
painful writing


living can be through introspection
searching for the meaning in my life
yet this does not imply perfection
pleasure versus pain is still in strife

i am in growing and creating
in the making ever unfinished
the writer prevented from writing
life passing by not truly engaged

pain prevents me from writing freely
and then i write to escape the pain
still needed by someone uniquely
for together we have smelt the rain

when there is nothing left to explore
being opens up in death a door

Inside Out

sonnet #12
inside out


i was indifferent to my being,
used myself as just a thing, a stranger;
me, a species of the genus “caring”,
my own guardian, a deranged lone ranger!

told i must see from the inside, myself,
to know how I appeared from the outside;
must learn to feel at one with this good “self”,
not estranged and cut off, blown off-side!

if i related to you as that self,
oh dear! God help you! i was truly stuffed!
but i learned to care for that guy, myself,
damn! doing so, the caring became shared!

now i have friends who think me worth knowing,
and we’ve sown seeds that will keep us growing.

Thoughts in the style of Pope

Sonnet #16
thoughts in the style of pope

i know how little can be known
i see all others’ faults and feel my own;
my own strange purpose to find
or make an enemy of mankind?

why is the external for that internal given?
am i not a God and earth my only heaven?
i, a virtuous son, am ill at ease
the lustful “Father” gave me a dire disease.

distracted by what others feel, what others think,
all pleasures sicken, all triumphs sink;
my right too rigid hardens into wrong
for the strong too weak, for the weak too strong.

all forms that die, other forms supply,
so i can catch that final breath, and die.
