BARBARIC SORROW

BARBARIC SORROW

Dead boys on beaches.
The world’s going mad.
How in hell’s name.
It’s just too f**king sad.
The images, too much to bear.
Please we all know,so please don’t share.
The child, whoever he is lost his life.
Death without dignity.
Please send him a prayer.
I’m not religious but, hell I so care.
There is apparently one saving grace.
They say his family are in the same place.
Too much.
Escape to death,one last mark of respect, I’m holding my breath.
I shall again breathe.
Holding tears on my sleeve.
Politicians, it’s time to act.

One thought on “BARBARIC SORROW

  1. Brilliant – i learned just yesterday that there is religion and ten there is state of being/. My friend Ma Shivamayi Achary on FACEBook (befriend her, you will love her, that’s my hunch),, She said to me – after I told her I was going to meet Buddha that day, that Buddha is a state of being … I see… you are a holy one … clearly … have you read your copy of Desiderata today?

    Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.
    As far as possible without surrender
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even the dull and the ignorant;
    they too have their story.

    Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
    they are vexations to the spirit.
    If you compare yourself with others,
    you may become vain and bitter;
    for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
    Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

    Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
    it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
    Exercise caution in your business affairs;
    for the world is full of trickery.
    But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
    many persons strive for high ideals;
    and everywhere life is full of heroism.

    Be yourself.
    Especially, do not feign affection.
    Neither be cynical about love;
    for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
    it is as perennial as the grass.

    Take kindly the counsel of the years,
    gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
    Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
    But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
    Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
    Beyond a wholesome discipline,
    be gentle with yourself.

    You are a child of the universe,
    no less than the trees and the stars;
    you have a right to be here.
    And whether or not it is clear to you,
    no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

    Therefore be at peace with God,
    whatever you conceive Him to be,
    and whatever your labors and aspirations,
    in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

    With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
    it is still a beautiful world.
    Be cheerful.
    Strive to be happy.
    Desiderata are, technically, things considered necessary or highly desirable OR something lacked and wanted.
    The poem is a list of things desirable in life. © by owner. provided at no charge for educational purposes
