To Poets

Come with us

We fear no evil

Because we’ve been this way before

The path is smoothed

Stones polished like glass

By the bare feet of the ever seeking

The weary who never rest

 

That’s us

And what are we looking for?

Everything and nothing

We look for truth

We look for beauty

And if we can’t find it in the world

God damn it, we’re going to find it in ourselves

Whether our inflated, fagile

Party balloon egos

Can take it or not

 

A wise man once said,

“Beauty is truth, truth beauty-

That is all ye know on Earth

And all ye need to know”

But a wiser man simply pleaded

“Just gimme some truth!”

We know

We all know

Poetry

Is a lie detector

As we strap ourselves in

To the pen and the paper

Wire ourselves to the keyboard

And dig for

The truth and beauty

In our souls

**Just wanted to mention that yesterday (4/30/2012) was the very first time that The Noise of Silence had 100 visits in one day!  Thank you all so much for reading my blog! 😀 **
