I fear I must at least offer a semblance of introduction to the following poem as it’s content is quite easily included in my ‘musings’ category provided studied attention is paid and if you follow carefully you will find cohesive thought and preponderance such as is representative of those former entities. However do not hasten past last you miss the subtleties of ideas and cognition. Regardless of your method of attention, thank you for reading.
~Perhaps a Musing~
Above the Noise
Some words unspoken from the heart
In rote indifference tear apart
Years from youth as choicest gains
Claim their place in form of chains.
Question what words such as these
Will long mean when conscious clings
To its feebleminded thread
Boasting intellect again.
All the while simple men
Follow hearts to impure ends
Conscience seared with brazen tool
Minds unwitting play the fool.
Ask of destiny your place,
Tell the fates how you’ll escape.
Shout your dreams without remorse
False endeavors plead recourse.
But you’ve no place in legends culled
From the histories of old.
Time has held captive your place
Within a landscape bleak untraced
Forging on anvils of chance
Fortune, fame, and oft romance
But to those held in low degree
Such as you, and such as me
History denies our pleas.
As if it’s scholars earn a fee
And demand recompense for deeds
Occurring far from fates decree
And uttered in unknown degrees.
Echoes of words left unsaid
Saddest end to saddest men.
Leave off your questioning of words
As they’ve no heart for all are cursed
Lost like signals to the void
Never heard above the noise.
