A Poet’s Address

The Poet's Address
The Poet’s Address

One more drop in an ocean,
one more consideration explored,
one more heart on a sleeve,
one more emotion betrothed,
and in my process, my daily grind,
seeking truth in words sublime,
I cannot deny the ultimate pleasure I am given,
when another soul is awakened
from their prison to say, I understand.

The work is just work,
a pursuing perfection that a heart such as mine
accepts for a greater cause,
and in truth I desperately try to help minds
aspire to a manifest realization
that life is for living, within love’s embrace,
and suffering is our destined learning,
a soul in growth, not malicious oppression
from an omnipotent source.

Every word I speak alludes to a written word,
each thought a phrase,
each miracle a cascade of beauty’s vow,
in nature’s keep our teacher here on earth,
and I sit for hours each and every day,
uplifted by the thoughts I hold,
and better for the expression,
a poetry of love that enfolds my being,
my sustenance of soul.

One more post, one more yearning,
one more critical eye and one more learning,
one more lesson and eye opening hurt,
as my work unfolds and life deserts
the hopes of many,
as a myriad of difficulty sweeps a cold retort,
lives so stricken with remorse and cruel experience,
all of which find paths in words,
truth above all our absurd reality.

So the pen ignites,
the mind lets loose the floodgates,
to sate or ignore in an ignorant bliss,
our words designed to instill the truths of our lives,
the pain and joy, the reality and ploys
we employ to survive,
to grow and aspire to betterment,
our purpose after all.

    Your “sustenance of soul” also gives much to others to better their life, for when your thoughts uplift you and are expressed in verse it grows to embrace your readers. Beautiful, uplifting work, Tony. Take care dear friend. Enjoy your evening.
