Never Shall They Know Happiness

Never Shall They Know Happiness
Never Shall They Know Happiness

The petals of my flower,
so wilted, drained of life,
from a constant dark cloud arisen
that conspires against the light,
and toxic air the breath
of dark souls make,
an environment so lacking
for beauty to remain.

My garden is now bleeding,
as corrupt the leaching soil,
water so green and tainted,
inhibits all my toil,
and this garden once so beautiful
can no longer hold its own,
driven by death and ill-intent,
my open life so prone.

For people who are toxic,
can cast a spell of gloom,
and their dark malicious souls,
effect a garden now consumed,
for just being near
they can sour a life of beauty,
turn loving intentions to dust
and nature’s gifts from duty.

I can lament this fading garden,
cry tears for all I’ve lost,
but the garden of my internal mind
is thriving despite the frost,
for in this garden my thoughts do sow,
my heart the beat of every bloom,
and paradise still rings and knows,
this garden lives eternal.

They may throw stones,
they may accuse and allies make,
their lies so sharp and many,
but they stand for their own sake,
for those of ill-intent against me,
shall never bend my will,
never take my knowing truth
or my loving heart instilled.

For they are the minds of ignorance,
the hearts of stone, the souls of ineptitude,
the lives of dark repose,
and they can never see the beauty,
that I breathe in every moment,
never see the loving hand of kindness,
that transforms a long lost soul,
and happiness will forever elude them,
in their hateful ways, alone.

    They can never enter the garden of your internal mind and the beauty that grows in your soul, for there is truth and love within you. Sadness surrounds you, Tony, but cannot take from you the core of who you are. Let this verse always remain strong:

    “for those of ill-intent against me,
    shall never bend my will,
    never take my knowing truth
    or my loving heart instilled.”
