As A 'Tongue of Truth'

as A 'Tongue of Truth'
Free-verse or rhyme,
for neither is a curse
since both can capture the mind
like bass secured on a tight line
frees a bleeding heart to flow
like rivers into rapids
like streams gently, eventually,
reaching vast oceans
as a tiny child in a boisterous crowd
Humble, though proud
to motivate into righteous masses
(or not, since your choice it is)
regardless of classes, races,
statuses or faces
To enlighten those seeking 'pearls'
To score favor with the 'Just One'
to Eternal Salvation
this in 'fact' as a 'cross of Dracula'--fiction
to many in delightful darkness,
which for a time is entirely allowed.
But when the festivities,
years past begun,
begin to end
before the curtain is closed
and the foot lights are dimmed
or before the gong is struck
or the opera's high note is stuck
let no mourning for them--
"Don't cry" nor clap your hands--
Don'the even try
it! as if to say "Good-bye!
For this too is 'not fashionable'
as a garment for the 'compassionate soul.'
So just keep your eyes focused
Straight ahead. Trust.
Look intently again toward the goal.
This Path brightly lit and paved
For this reason:
