Wishes On Fire

Nothing leaves a footprint

like a memory burned

Deep into the consciousness

of those unlearned

 

Nothing grows more deadly

than the force of will

It powers every weapon

it vanquishes with skill

 

Nothing braves tomorrow

like a wish on fire

Its light forever’s beacon

to each soul aspired

 

Nothing is more final

than a dying breath

Words exiting their prison

—eternity’s rosette

Cobbled Stones

The path to eternity

weaves and turns

As choices deceive

and judgment burns

 

Its labyrinth changing

and mirror lined

Voices in transit

new order unrhymed

 

Pursuit often folly

refusal is death

The push is internal

escaping your breath

 

Beginnings unending

the past in refute

Each moment unfolding

—beyond all repute
