A Prayer For a Far Cry From Foolishness


A Prayer For A Far Cry From Foolishness



Pray for resolutions to be shut away 

from the wrong half of hope.

For behind those doors are where ghastly foes may live.

Give blessings to a vitality of enrichment blooming,

revitalizing never declared stories in memory, 

with nothing forgotten.


The old beau geste, 

its noble yet futile gestures

having been revised into a courageous beat of truth.


Use of acumen reminds us that time must birth

a more eloquent way of thinking,

hearts awakened by gratitude.


Bedlam and berserk,

uncovered, discarded,

no more absorption 

of the irrational rumors spread by those on stage.


A burgeoning sound,

traced from here to there,

heard, felt, developed so each season may shine.


From stone weapons to computer analysis

we grow tall,

but only if analysis is solely used 

to help others’ hearts.
