I was nominated by another poet via Facebook to post a poem each day for 5 days. This poem could be freshly written or something that hadn’t been posted before. I’ve opted for faith in the poems I’ve had less contact with since they’ve been written.
Fighting in the ring of denial
Looking for that knockout blow
Moving in white lies
But I can never avoid the speed of reason
The power of logic comes home to roost on my chin
If truth can set you free
Then my mind is housed in glass doomed to crack and shatter
What is the purpose of fighting truth when revelation is a redeeming knowledge served on a platter for you to add to your arsenal
Wisdom is an acquaintance of knowledge
An acquisition that will not arrive horse drawn.
Wisdom and knowledge are the bridge with railings we deploy to ensure we cross through situations safely
Without these tools we crash into trouble at breakneck speed
Just as your five fruit a day
We need these
At the end of the weak
