Precedent Poems

Poems from the prior week:

UNLIKE

Not
Like
Those 
Who 
Must 
Conquer 
every living thing
To 
Prove
Their 
Strength 
Through 
ManQipulating 
The
Weakness
Of human kind. 

You
Bless 
The 
Meek,
Make
Their 
Inheritance 
Probable -
If 
Not 
Directly 
Possible. 


VOICES

When God speaks to you what does he say?

Does he speak through me
when your head is sleepily upon your pillow?

What other voices join the conversation?

And how loud and how often does their discord
enter the discourse?

Will you have the final say?

Have we taught you to be
brave in what you want
and picky in whom you trust?

Stoicism

Stoic emotions 
produce predictable
outcomes, contributing
strong foundations
to surround passing fancies
with abounding discernment. 

Ink and Paper

"I don't know what to write!"

It sounds interesting -
the silence of the page.

Silence that stares back at you
like a hurricane of confused thoughts
swirling circles in the circuitry of the mind.

Silence broken by dark ink on white paper
revealing through decrypted blemishes
what we do and what we don't know, or share.
