art of the word, if you dare to believe.

silent blues’ moon rising
late night
only shadow light falls
can a man ever sleep
he needs to believe
forty years trying
still looking for
a man of honor
to stand within his only
lonely mirror
high mountain wind
across a balcony
on an ancient river’s edge
a television plays on and on
my country, my world
first comes money
first comes god
while our children starve
and old men die, alone
as still again a child man
grown old
but where can he go
when he needs to believe
paper man
nothing left but sand
caught in a wind
from the ocean
and its’
blue-green screams,
deep where freedom hides
where believing resides
just a tired poet
who is
just a man
who no longer cries. -jude
