The Clown's Philosophy

a desperate want of being
is an illusion

a soulless purpose to recognizing oneself
is an delusion

a darkness that has no light
is truth

a fantasy that is real
is a lie

who claims these clouds?
these dripping, unshielded rain drops,
leaving nothing but acceptance

making man compelled to fight
driven to win and to
weed out the conscious drones

freedom has been stripped

trapped in fear’s impolite silence
spineless in world’s trust, thinking,
‘maybe tomorrow will be better’

Just For Today

the day's mysteries have been seen before
our chosen rights pushing through open doors

what shall we learn today?
a lesson we were told to pray?

a seemingly distant fog
     procuring ancient frogs,
          but never taking our protection from dogs

light becomes the waver of life
begging our stingy strife

a message for you, I write
     to enhance your rights
          diminish your frights

freeing the will to change,
but keeping our destinies strange

my final bridge to this divine plan

that always lasts a life span…

life circles, set in stories and
until you're carried away on a gurney
