Karmic Revenge

Updated on June 20, 2012
Source

Every now and then

vengeful thoughts may cross my mind,

allowing me to feel

a sweet release.


Lost in a dream

I see a way out

of a sea of torment,

no longer do I need

to remember.


As I wonder

of your soul,

I feel a freedom

you will never know.


Though I've been beaten

I lift my head high

always aware

that the merry goes around

over and over

the past repeats.


Looking over your shouldar

always a glance behind

to see what comes.


Forever to worry

of what I will do

or where I will be,

if I will take a stand

make a statement

do something in return,

worry and shame your constant companions.


In your world,

a broken clock sits in the corner

forgotten under a layer of dust

a calendar remains stuck on that date,

imprisoned as you wait and watch.


Years go by

but I know my turn will come.

      Thanks Derdriu. I took that picture of artwork painted on the wall of a church building. I don't remember the exact message of the quote. I just liked the picture.

      TruthForNow, Wow! And the original art work is equally great. But the computer is a bit jittery today, and the print isn't clear. What is the message just above the mountains and to the right of the girl?

      Up + UABI.

      Respectfully, and with many thanks for sharing, Derdriu
