Poetry

Closed Minds

oldhouseWPblogCR

“Counterfeit pleasures
Egoist survival skills
Thin-skinned distractions

Debris filled precepts
Impotent wisdom maelstrom
Dim light episodes

Abyssal journeys
Cannot elude choices made
Life perplexity

Empire building
Self-preservation instincts
The inner naiveté

Savage acts of thought
Fragmenting Humanity
The oceans tremble

Peace through violence
Ultimate antithesis
Gross ineptitude

Final greed demise
Lesser ego overthrow
Closed mind extinction”

The Irreducible Primary

  1. The photo is a perfect match to the poem. In fact, just the post title and the photo of boarded up windows had quite an impact. Your words are so powerful. I can only imagine the intense feelings you must have had as you wrote that.
