Piercing Pose Of Thee

Piercing pose of thee-

Why do you see?

Ingrained grit of humanity-

Every evil.

Imperfect goodness-

Every infinitesimal bit!


Piercing pose of thee-

Your eyes are of light tonight,

Some machination of white-

You stand so proud-


A reason should be given…

What is reason without realism?

An addition of emotional intrusion-

Never we saw

And ever we see-

The curses of insecurity,

The weaves of winter’s lost leases-

Still your smile,

Always your smile-

Turned to the window…

Grey gratitude, the concrete cure conveys-

Down we fall, though we still stall-

O’ piercing pose of thee,

Why do you see?

What do you see?
