Depense
It’s time to change the way you think today —
Discard ideas that have never worked
Like some horrid shirt you have always liked
But never really had the eyes to see —
Until Time tapped you upon the shoulder.
Adrift in life midst thousands of islands
Similar to yourself in morphic shape
You back away from contact in defence. . .
But it is better to reach out your voice,
Seek ears that long to hear some sound somewhere,
Determine to speak to one another —
Advise, inform, tell others of your dreams,
Share out the glories of your finest thoughts
As cosmic candies, genesis of love.
