Poem -

Mankind

There is a rumour
that we are all creation by Elegant Design 

that would be a falsity

we are good at suffering--
inflicting 
self-inflicted 

there is only inelegance in suffering 

so God isn't hearing your prayers 
you little shit.

On Reason and Passion
 Kahlil Gibran

Your soul is oftentimes a battlefield, upon which your reason and your judgment wage war against your passion and your appetite.
Would that I could be the peacemaker in your soul, that I might turn the discord and the rivalry of your elements into oneness and melody.
But how shall I, unless you yourselves be also the peacemakers, nay, the lovers of all your elements?

God isn't hearing your prayers 
you little shit.

​​​​​​​gotta love the ending...

Thank you for reading Dblankportrait. It's been a while since I've thought of Gibran. A prophet-poet if there ever was one. Even though our philosophies tend to clash, I'll quote him, "For what is evil but good tortured by its own hunger and thirst?" 

Thank you for reading once again.
