Better Things

Better Things short poem

Photo by Fuzzy Gerdes


There are nightmare dreams that haunt the sky
From minds hard anchored to the earth
And deadened thoughts from dead ones eyes
Who’s living failed them at their birth.

No Lovers touched by lovers thoughts
Nor Eros arrows piercing hearts
Hatred’s curse creates a corpse
And shreds a life. So torn apart.

But light, it also has a life
Banning darkness and the gloom
Relieving pain, smoothing strife
A fearless brightness in full bloom.

Shine light! On lovers and their kiss
On the sweet bird and on the song it sings
Believe that life can be like this
Believe! Believe in better things!
