Your Call

Your Call
Watch and Listen to a reading of the poem by me.

 

Is there a purpose to our life and if there is,
how is it different from that of a cockroach,
a salamander or the plague dispersing mice?
I think the time has come for you to determine!
    

Am I sleeping or must you wake up from your dreams?
It is your call but do let me know what you think!
You have the key, whichever way your call might come,
to change it all, only if you do not succumb
to the vested whims of the alleged majority!
    

If it is I who has his eyes closed, wake me up,
if they be yours, wake up and let them see the light!
Either way, please no more be silent or inert,
for that is the gravest sin against humankind –
to shrug it off, unless yourself is on the firing line!

Clairvoyance

Clairvoyance

I have an orb of crystal in my head,
an orb that showed me the future some time!
Though often no matter how hard I tried
I could see nothing as no light was shed!
   

There were days it showed me nothing at all,
despite my bereaved insistence but then
some days it would pull me down, unwilling
into an abyss frightening my soul!
    

So it did last night and at first I thought,
it was a nightmare from my nightly lot
but it was the orb striving hard to tell
the addresses to your heaven and hell!
   

In the end it turned out that it was I
who held the key to them in truth and lies!
