Please see poem comments "age relat'd" for a history on this sister creation. This was done not out of criticism; but was done because I did not fully reflect on how the first poem would serve to enlighten as many people as possible. Never be afraid to question, or ask questions about anything. That is what the inner child would want

Represented to all readers with great honor and gratitude,
cynth'ya.



 


 

once upon a delusion. . . 
Age was quite bright eye’d
and content; she paid her dues,
stay
’d in her little box of comfort,
and work
’d incessantly
by the tick of the clock
set in motion  
by the scribes
who frown
’d whenever they were
challeng
’d

for a while, Age was cool with
accepting things as they were. . .

but then something strange occur
’d,
and the bright eye
’d curiosity of Age
became weary from being left out
of the decision making process,


she was frustrated not knowing what
was really going on behind
the clouds of history
’s pain,


Age was perturb
’d by the way
that Knowledge kept her blind
and felt her questions were more
inconvenient than her right to know,



so Age just mov
’d along in the
silent glow of David
’s Star;

and just went along with the program,
having nothing more to wish upon



she allow’d her future
to thumb
a ride in the mist of
galactic darkness,  all along
the lonely road of life she
overheard Heartache, Fear and Boredom,
gossip shamelessly like a a m
ιnage a trois
of cyclones wrapping their tails around
her neck, choking off her coping mechanism



for all Age had to look forward to
was a lifetime of precautions
she no longer enjoy
’d her life;
she accept
’d what she was told
there was absolutely no way
for her to prepare herself for the
never-ending side effects that
the wind shear of change
threw into her walking trail
purposely left unindex
’d

on her roadmap. . .



looking back,
if it were possible for Age
to murmur to the one
who cement’d the stars
around the circumference
of a fallen moon,
she might have attempt
’d
to beg David's Star for one more chance
to regain a few of life
’s untold stories,

stories that she never had permission to tell, stories that were so cruelly snatch
’d
from the grip of her weather’d palm,
immobiliz'd in the wake of an expir’d Reality that whisk’d away her redemption like poison pok'd into an innocent vein.

This one reads more smoothly but both pieces have their strong points. :-) Thank you, Cynth'ya.
Reviewed by E T Waldron 12/27/2005
I read both and I see that you have delivered a profound look at the aspect of our era and how things have failed to progress and in many instances gone beyond our ability to keep up with the progress. Sadly it has always been a fact, that we have great advances in technology, but human relationships and how to accept one another never seems to progress as well. We have a lot still to learn and to answer for. Excellent thought-provoking write Cynth'ya!

Spot on, sis!

This one is much more clear to me. I understand it better. But the other one had some kind of powerful mysterious quality. I could hear the crying out in pain and feel movement. Both are great, Sis.
