Inherent

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


Inherent the fall to lesser ground,

instilled the obsolescence of humans bound,

to draw from potential and goodness laid,

within a soul of promise made.


Extracting the doubts and evil will,

buried deep within this human ill,

of ineptitudes not faced or dealt,

pervading all the suffering felt.


But within this conflict and struggled life,

beyond innate and uncertain strife,

there is a choice and nurturing light,

that hold us true in darkest night.


We are the captains of our course,

regardless of inherent force,

in choice do we find freedom’s gift,

in choice do we set our lives adrift.


Into a world of promise make,

a life fulfilled by past mistakes,

in accepting fault and truth in heart,

a life begins again from start.


Inherent traits are but a choice,

to accept of deny in strongest voice,

and follow our dreams and live in truth,

in joy and love our living proof.

Very eloquent - and you really show fabulous use of word economy *while* respecting metrical aesthetics and rhyming so authentically and naturally. No *WAY* an easy task.

Philosophically, I'm still going my 15 rounds with your message. But your poetry is undeniable art. :)

Hi Tony, I enjoyed your poem and it is beautiful. I chose to read it out loud and the words melodically rolled off the tongue. The words seemed carefully chosen and the meaning of them are perfection. If I were to find this poem somewhere other than on Hub pages it would be under inspirational poetry. Well done.

amazing, It seems like the universe really knows what we need. I have suffered a tragedy recently, the sudden loss of a loved one. Realizing 4 days had gone by and I had done NOTHING I finally came back on here to try and re-motivate and remember what it was like for things to be "normal" and I found this, and another similarly meaningful piece of writing. Both pieces captured the thoughts racing around my head and effortlessly put into words the things I cant seem to say, Perfect timing, thanks for sharing
