Hope against hope; days in which to mend. Karma conversing the means to an end.

Freedom cries soft unto the night, the beginning to the ending; cracked walls fearful plight.


A Crack In The Wall

 

Hidden dramas by walls concealed.

Worn; now cracked, utterly revealed.

Ignominy consumes the gentle reflection.

Once buried scourge; today’s resurrection. 

 

No mortar, no sand; no matter.

Lifeless head offered up on a tarnished platter.

Days afore to be affronted again.

Tomorrow’s bright future; trashed by yesterday’s sin.

 

Dreams migratory crash impasses stoic reminder.

Walls now down, where revelations abound.

Pride begets humility; one more lesson found.

 

Cheap tricks reveal this fool’s silent demise.

Sweet secrets become boldly the beggars cry.

Walls which once concealed…now reveal.

When the walls crumble and reveal all that was concealed, the truth will come out, once exposed to the light of day. Well written truths here Allen.
