Glass of Life

tumblr_mc85ml5MUX1rdd58ro1_500

Clouds of false pride………………..underneath modesty, they hide.

Stood up great, the candied glass of life,

Chirking up in faux pride of vernal wine.

Brimmed with gloat, no ail no grief;

All globe it induced, to bid as MINE.

Befogged in vapors of ego, enthroned so high;

Enticed the storm and descended the fall.

Tattered bitingly to footing in an awful sigh,

Bussed its end upon kismet’s surly call.

Erstwhile, a paradigm of glinting shine,

Threw off its splendor to the fatal night.

Knelt in hope for the stars to align.

Battered and bankrupted; lost the fight.

Reposed with a damped pride, naught remain;

Befriended the ground and feared the height.

Prayed for humility, its collapsed pieces so fine;

Freed is the ego, the glass is clear and al-right!

    Your poem is so amazing “Freed is the ego” I like that part so much. Your words urge me to feel everything you have trying to tell us. Never knew a glass could be such a master piece though 😉 Love your piece.

    So much loveliness here. I love how you are absolutely comfortable with your vocabulary (which not to mention is amazing and powerful), your thoughts are perfectly weaved through your words..you’re a gifted poet! Keep writing because I can’t get enough of your poems, always so refreshing and with such flair. Will be back to read this. ❤
    Lots of love,
