Angst

No longer do I travel far

Or shed the world I stood to view

No longer do I move outside

The land I yearned and crooned and streamed

No longer do I love for sake

(True love found in inner feeling)

No longer do I seek success

Or look to sunshine’s inner glow

For it has gone so far away

(what once I thought was here for good)

Now the darkness takes its place

A village stands for what’s demeaning

A village closed to others’ thoughts

Like minds well shut to disparate views

Like minds closed to thoughts opined

Like minds that know just one thing – fear

Fear to speak one’s mind decrying

For what we had is gone – is gone

For what we had left us belonging

To nothing – no-one – no-where near

My eyes – they cry – and shed more tears

My eyes – they weep – and say (reminding)

The latest fad – with harm it loiters

The latest fad is over-taking

A worldly life – pray, worth preserving

A worldly life – fight off their dare

Angst be gone – away their screening

Angst be gone – devoid of meaning.
