Contradictions Miriam Mendes Torres De Olivera
Poem By Jonathan ROBIN
MIracle or lack of self-esteem,
RIsing star or dwarf past better days?
AMong songs sacred none may paraphrase,
MENDing scars, or Styx forgetful stream?
Energy or superficial gleam.
STORy's happy tale or bale betrays?
RESponsive sharing or self-seeking praise
DEpendant on self-serving subtle scheme
Overdrawn by theft bereft of dream
LIVE d through shame where blameful game repays
RAised stakes that stifle, buy time through delays.
MInd boggles. Contradictions let off steam.
RIghteous indignation steers review:
AMid pretence no true light bright vents through.
