My eyes can't reach its end, The sky seems so calm to dwindle and blend, The limits are limitless, same as the opportunities are, Sky is boundless like life, near or far. When things seem to eradicate with darkness all around, The gleaming of sun brings hope so profound, Floating the fragrance of longings around, Deep voice of the sun that talks to the ground. The clouds move unhurriedly, all unique and white, No comparison between them, then why to frown and fight. The hours have changed, the clock striking twelve, The ups and downs or the misery and gaeity to dwell, The stillness of night, or the turbulence of the day, The life seems like a drowsy ship with pirates into the fray. The night changes, the moon too, Full moon fades the way the leaves laden dew do, New moon restarts with welcoming Present, Leaving the Past, to come up with spice and elixir of something pleasant. The twinkling stars fluctuate my thoughts, All my abstract feelings with opening of ephemeral knots, Scrolling my heart, I will become the brightest one, Among many, will be the only brightest sun.
Those folds feel like the vast desert to lost on, Those enlightened eyes look like the endless ocean to inundate on, That embowed body seems to be the bent branches to cherish on, And those dull, grey hair like the mammoth sky to hold on.
These several years show the beginning of the end, Recollecting the memories and then move to an errand, Like the waves move towards the pebbled shore, Their soul will walk back to the master from where it had came before.
The clash between the experienced and the new, Want the return of love ,lost madly in their bygone view, How immature are these mature men, Thinking the eons to come round before the dawn again.
The shrinking smile has still desires to be fulfilled, Who never deeply felt, nor clearly willed, The upcomings are the pillars for the grinned skulls, Let's polish their remaining years just like the laughing gull.
Šweet Dreams my Sweet ones couldn't thank everyone who shared their love and support on my Soul Quotes, will try to catch up tomo but just letting you know that how much your love means to me. Thank you so much ❤️ Much love :)
THE CALLING by Carolyn Glackin Cataclysmic, catastrophic Metaphysics, soul bionic Artificial, feigned and fused Simulated, truth abused Opportunists, feckless charmers Ne'er-do-wells And harmful harmers A dime a dozen, devil may care A social gracer's savoir faire Ruthless rulings herd the sheep Awakened ones no longer sleep Thoughts gone crazy World gone wild We've spared the rod But can we save the child? Dramatic dramas, role reversal Time for action, no dress rehearsal The humble, thwarted The meek, mistreated The road to righteousness, deleted Skies now darkened Thoughts now dimmed The faithful cling to psalms and hymns Annihilation, mass destruction Welcome to the grand induction Harried hearts and weary minds Fearful as the path unwinds Angelic souls, random kindness All the rest, preferring blindness Nations crumbling, Gaia grieving Stoic soldiers, disbelieving Iniquitous dens, housing heathens You've heard my rhymes Y'all want the reasons? The so-called superior, lauded elite Living in mansions, ain't life sweet? Using dollars as weapons And jewels as tools Trying to trap us Thinking we'll play the fools Who's to blame though? Surely not Satan! Humans did this, so don't be hatin' Who's ready to fix it? Who's ready to rise? Awaken, oh brethren! Seek the truth through the lies! I know it's alarming I know it's unreal 'Cause see, you're all used to hurtin' But are y'all ready to heal? The job's monumental We're talking epic proportions But it's time to start changing All these social distortions We need all able bodies So please answer the call It's time we joined hands All for one, one for all Together, we got this! We're our own salvation So let's get this thing done Save every place, every nation And as hard to believe As this next sentence seems When we're done with all that We'll build the world of our dreams A world based on fairness Regardless of races Accepting of color Loving all faces Where genders are equal Income paid fairly No more social elites Oh gee, we'll miss them dearly I'm 'bout to wrap this thing up now Enough rhymin' and schemin' Who's ready? Who's with me? Let's manifest what we're dreamin' The present is daunting But the future stands bright I've spoken enough now Peace out y'all. Good night. Copyright Carolyn Glackin 7/12/2019
