Eat, pray, weep…?


Shelter from heat
Is that all we seek?


Wishing on a passing cloud
Is that all that holds benefitting clout?


Sing in my praise, before they sleep
Eat, pray, weep…is that the order of the sheep?


Come on by with a wistful must
Shatter those chains of an aged past
Unwilling though…you still find trust!


For look ahead, far deep into the light
A challenging sword, in all its might
Clearing boundaries…all around, left and then right
Herein lies my evergreen, vengeful delight!

A poem by Chriselda Barretto
