Just As A Thief

As years tick on, mere mortals descend into dust;
attacked by a gloom ‘n despondent by past regrets.
Species multiply, convoluted in turbulent distrust;
haunted by mankind’s inhuman gurgles of threats.

Unlike the winds of the world blowing wild ‘n free;
there’s a hunger unappeased from birth to death.
Grappling inside rivers of fears, smoldering debris;
searching for solace ‘n seek out life giving breath.

Is it possible for humiliated rainbows to shine again;
who are wrapped inside phantoms formidable walls?
Allow life’s flowing waters to cascade as a fountain;
filling the dignified circumference of illustrated halls.

Decades have vanished for the witnesses of horror;
their visions of tomorrow could not bring them relief.
Let’s try to salvage a reminder of the great explorers;
instead of entering through rear doors, just as a thief.

On the road of vigilant minds, this poem was conceived to
be written and delivered at the Doers´ Poliversity.

May this message be read through the millennia, and may
its contents be understood.

I have learned from reading this masterpiece.

I salute You, Poet!

Thomas, this poem is a awesome reminder of the true nature of man's soul and its message to maintain focus even in times of dispondence enlightens and inspires the heart within us ... indeed we must purge ahead or all that will remain of us will be a thief of truth who will rob us of all our goals ...
