The guiding Star
Blessedly not afar...
Yet, ideal bit by bit
Falling on earth's crust,
Unmoved by Spirit's Gust...
Moment by moment dying
Inch by inch sliding
By flauntingly lying,
Dwelling on barren zone
Relishing ghoulish dryness
Instead of quenching thirst
From the Spring of Water Finest...
Breed hasty opinions
As ruinous minions
The heavenly bestowed gift
Used for demoralizing rift,
Swamped in vice throng
Smudged slope of right and wrong -
The robber of hope
In need of gallant rooting
To nurture abundant harvest -
Firm virtuous footing.
Deserting grasslands of life and love,
Life-giving, life receiving
Self-giving, grateful receiving;
On a haunting landslide of venal spree
A mainland, inland grievously un-free.
The radiance of self-sacrificing might,
A non-sexual self-giving,
Are - in the main - foreign to modern living,
Tender their resignation onto soft earth
Of paganized, secularized,
Technologized, vulgarized animation
Unborn life object-ification...
Depersonalization, to be eliminated!
Fiddled with, engineered...
For ill-willed gratification.
Ferocious onslaught on innocent life
Sowing grief, despair, avoidable strife.
The mushrooming perils
Of the liberal-minded,
Claiming all "truths" are defensible -
Myth of the wits and brains blinded,
Treacherous "season of unreason"
Epidemic of rust and dust cerebral
Gibberish - cherished
Peddling lies - nightmarish...
Dig deeper - unredeemed...
Sightless as nocturnal creatures,
Becalmed in self-indulgent trance
As breathing weaklings' legless dance.
Blind, noetic suicide...
Unmatched giving met by the evil-eyed
Treading into quicksand of anti-morality -
A horrifying, looming feel
Of Sodom, Gomorrah death-blow deal.
Does not body cry out
As the voice of the heart?
As sure as stars shine,
Today's heart is gravely marred...
