How the preachers talk of heavenly kingdoms,

Of Eden, of bliss and rejuvenation!

While I and my kind are homeless and toiling,

Pining for peace and amity among nations.

'Thwarted Spirit'
reveler in the dark
set aside your
torrents of tears
and ink bleed
your love's wisdom
onto the paper
of all foolish human hearts
for it is written in your book
that you very well can
so why not
do so
protract your poetic gifts
help soothe the turmoils of
your fellow man...........
you know who!.........so why type it?
