|10:03 am - A Poem I'm reminded of...|
childlikeone just posted a poem about the kingdom of ourselves. It absolutely reminded me of a poem I wrote about a year ago. My poem was, in turn, a response to a poem by Dylan Thomas. That poem is here: http://www.wavemag.com/zine/oct98/sidetruth.html
King of My Heart - by me
There is a loneliness that leads to slavery;
I know that I have made it mine.
There is a cause that makes a crisis mute,
A lie that makes all true sight blind.
There is a fearfulness beside my days,
A lifelessness behind my mind.
The next progression I should make
Is slaved to an inverted time.
There is a kingdom I have barely met,
A life which I have seldom seen.
There is a path that only saints may tread,
A confidence of holy fools that dream.
This is my home—my sinew, and my nerve:
I would be and I am a fool to serve.
