Absent Relief

A biblical injunction ringing true
Assures us once dishonesty's begun
A thousand future lies we then pursue
In the attempt to justify that one

How effortless to tell a "harmless" lie
When everyone around us tells them too
Inundate are we flagrant falsehood by
Until we most cannot discern the true

And some among us now deny exist
Any such absolute as truth at all
Always to every brother skeptic list
Relationship which this true heart appall

Which cannot seem unto life to adjust
Completely absent the relief of trust

A poet is the strangest sort of soul
You in this life may e'er expect to meet
More broken even while more truly whole,
Innocently intending well, more sweet

Than any but a five year old should be
Unfit to meet a callused world's demand
Or to behave aught expediently
All grace in flight; an albatross on land

Do not the all too common error make
Do not fall into the too easy trap
Avoid the fatal egoic mistake
Imagining that poet be a sap

Powerful spirits classic and antique
Give voice when poets ope their mouths to speak
