Silence is golden

Posted in Stuff on May 27, 2021 by rawbacon

Oh, what’s the point?

We asked the Lady,

expecting the usual stoney silence.

But for once she took pity

and showed us.

We’ll never ask again.

Home is where..

They talk about

the Anglo-Saxons,

but they never say

that we’re the Anglos.

Nationalism can kiss my ass,

we’re all emigrants.

Seize the moment, please

The liberated individual

seldom gets a chance

to flourish.

Throughout history,

life’s been hard

for those that see,

those that feel.

So

make the most of it,

while you can.

While they’re busy elsewhere.

Maybe this time around,

the virtues will stick.

Maybe this time around,

we’ll win.

Don’t you

All we ask

is that you don’t

forget us.

That you don’t take

our sacrifice

for granted.

Salute us

as we go forth.

Acknovledge our existence

as we fight for yours.

To thy own self, accept

Maybe I’m wrong,

something I’m all too willing to concede,

but we all need a little madness,

from time to time,

no?

Maybe we can live orderly,

bloodless,

lives,

day in & day out

and not revolt.

Maybe..

Doesn’t seem to be much

evidence

to support this

though.

Knowing this,

suggests we might be better off,

perhaps,

accepting a little madness into our life,

lest we implode

from the pressure?

——-

Or maybe I’m just as mad

as you might imagine.

A man who talks

to streams and waterfalls.

A mad man seeking madness..

But

maybe a man is not alone

in his madness.

Maybe others see this too,

maybe others see this and see that it needs taming,

that we must ride it,

lest it rides us,

control us.

——-

The only way to ride

is to accept.

The world is catching up

I’m woke

I know, I’m sorry,

but there it is.

I could never admit it

in polite company,

but the mind of the world

is finally swinging

my way.

It’s nice.

Know them, Respect them, Own them

And in order to survive these coming days,

know yourself.

Nothing else matters,

unless you know yourself.

Know your faults and your foibles,

sure,

but most of all,

know your strengths.

You’re gonna need them,

these coming days,

years,

life-times.
