Gala of Wisdom

Imperfections  
splayed  
within the sorrows  
that confine  
the souls  
in ponderance
I sip on the loneliness  
that continues  
through  
my legacy
 
Swept  
into  
unintentional  
anguish
Bleeding the toxins  
of  
self-doubt  
We inflict
personal punishments  
that are  
profoundly misunderstood
 
A subtle scarring  
of
the soul
 
Justification and despair
performing  
without  
valuation  
as
the shadow of the stone  
is darkened
by
circumstance
 
In time,
will my healing be inhibited †
by the sadness
simmering in my mind?
So much so,
that I am unable  
to polish my oath  
of  
self-forgiveness?
 
When the sun shines  
far  
to  
the  
east,  
my perception  
becomes  
impenetrable
 
As my spirit sunders
amidst the vices  
that impair
my concentration,  
I consider the warnings  
that  
peril may be slavish
to the psyche
in this  
unwitting prostration  
 
Hindered,  
yet determined
I will prevail  
when the windows  
come into view  
and  
the  
winds  
fall
unattended
 
As a token  
to  
my journey,
I will allow my intentions
to filter through  
the otherness
of  
lore,
sealing them  
within  
the gala of wisdom,
unharmed  
by  
the  
tangling  
of  
woe
that once haunted  
my  
understandings
