Ode to the Venomous

Smiles of yesterday
Now long gone
In the midst of decay
The heart befalls sorrow

With every passing of day
Images play without end
Twisting one inside – out
Calling solace unto soul

The weight of the world
As trials and convictions
Consume the essence
In a ceaseless fashion

Toxic tongues spewing
Malice – lies in deceit
No knowledge of truth
Reveling in own mayhem

In absolute bitterness
Do they dwell
Duality in persona
“Hidden” from the world

Not! I see their faces!
May mercy befall them!
As “karma” shall rule
As the true self unveils

Tis’ known the eternal rule
However, it may be awhile
At the hands of true fate
As love swiftly turns to hate

In my spirit, be there only love
Bestowing endless compassion
To those who reign within heart
Surrendering to destined course 

Through the weakness of core
Comes the strength within
Rising resolutely to occasion
In a state of enlightenment
