Rogue

Rogue

O' bear persistence mine,
Me thinks enfeebled spine.
Dastardly tis amber blight,
Streaming haunts twilight.

Nary 'tis beauteous moon,
Nemesis 'tis ignoble ruin.
Ethos portray telltale signs,
Urges cast embittered pines.

Fathomed, depths of a heart,
Β Hysteria taints loving part.
Bedlam β€˜tis scattered aglow.
Why must thou pursue me so?

Dormant cores hath awoken,
Pray thee, I behest unbroken.
Jaded heart, stoic guarded,
O' sweet vein, forsaken-hearted.

Bode thou amending psalm
Affliction solvent balm.
Launder crevasse clean,
Rogue ardor shalt intervene.

MANY HAVE BEEN SET APART. For, the good they represented, or the bad, or a mixture of both ( most interesting, in my opinion ! ). To go down, in history, can be seen in a certain way. As you are dead. Does it matter ?
IT IS TO YOUR ADVANTAGE TO BE SEEN IN A CERTAIN LIGHT, WHILST ALIVE. I would not worry beyond that, when considering others. Respect of those around you does lift your spirit beyond the normal !!! :) :)
YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE AN " OUTCAST "....a " social lepar " !!! The bonds of life, as we know, differ, in mankind, as compared to other species. That is because we have a SOUL. They, do not progress from learning as we do, obviously.
IT IS IN HISTORY THAT WE FIND CLUES TO POPULAR CULTURE, and how people came to benefit most. They were appreciative of their health, looking to love, hope, joy and peace, to foster improvements, for others, as well as themselves. They, were happier for it, I should imagine !! :) :)
YOU CAN BE " INFAMOUS ", of course. But, who would want to be....alive or dead. ONLY A "ROGUE ", devoid of any redeeming features. The " freak culture " they embrace, on most occasions, would cause fear and consternation in the general population. It is to comfort and security that the vast majority look......to build a better habitat.
YOU CAN NOT PANDER TO OUTLANDISH DESIGN. If you do, you can end up with " LITTLE HITLERS ".....or the real deal !!!!! :) :) :) You, know the type I look at, here. DO YOU NOT ? :) :)
If treated a certain way in live, you can feel proud of yourself, can you not ? You are guaranteed to be remembered fondly, on departing the mortal coil.Β  " IF YOU DO RIGHT BY PEOPLE, THEY DO RIGHT BY YOU " !! :) :)Β 
Never, underestimate the power of "vocal support ", stemming from praise, for actions above the expected. To " reach out a helping-hand " means you are guaranteed a certain level of treatment !!
SUCH A COMPETENT WRITE. As is always the case, from you.
TAKE CARE, MY FRIEND. :) :) !! You are such an inspiration, FOR WHAT YOU GIVE. Thank you. XX Your relatives shall always be proud of you.Β Β

" YOU WILL, FIND YOUR " TOUCH " !!! Again and again. You, can not keep talent down. You, must agree. Surely ? :) :)
YOU, TAKE IT ALL IN. The " vagaries " of poetry in motion. Always. That alone, serves you well, my dear. :)

" HOW CAN YOU NOT ? " Taking everything into account. Wake up, and " smell the roses ", for goodness sake. YOU, HAVE DONE IT, FOR A LONG TIME. Experience counts, you know. :) :)
