Wrong direction


Sight far-reaching
My mind is teaching
Me a lesson in being.
Wisdom streaching
Eyes are catching
Figments of truth,
I am seeing.
I now despise
The many told lies
That in my youth
I believed.
Beneath the disguise
I see with open eyes
How lost one can be
When decieved.
I've been stultified
Directed by a foolish guide
Now I know that I must lead.
Ahead I must go,
To a place I know
Where confusion
No longer blares.
Onto the future
I must hold
With a vision
Of self-repsect
And undying care.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
