Re-calibrate thy Mind.

Re-calibrate thy Mind.

Wisdom can come at a heavy price,
And many give in to immoral vice.
Strength of Will can keep you whole,
When intolerance of others can break the soul.

Open thy mind to your fellow beings,
Before the bell of Chtulu rings.
Destruction and Madness is his domain,
Fire and brimstone. Caustic rain.

Silence, that cold parasite, breeds swift.
Worse yet Bigotry, who casts all adrift.
So speak up, those filled with Benevolance’s Light.
Aid your fellows afflicted by the Twin’s Blight.

The key to Hope is in thy Dreams,
The Power of Tolerance to restore the seams,
Of frayed and tattered souls aplenty.
So share thy Knowledge, oh ye Cognoscenti.

For through your words of Forberance,
Can Life’s Shadows be walked with assurance,
That whilst the Light can burn and Darkness blind,
We need not by Chthulu’s Children be confined.

Wisdom can come at a heavy price,
And many give in instead to immoral vice.
Thy Strength of Will can keep ye whole,
Whilst intolerance of others can break thy soul.

crissy: Awesome work. The characters are so beautifully flawed and easy to relate to. The protagonist Bethany Hill is a woman that I would definitely want to meet in real life. The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...

preety_lady_serenity: I really liked the poem. It created this picture of a baroque style cafe that you kind of enter it to feel relaxed and yet you feel trapped due to outside circumstances.I especially loved the writing style, If one looks at it, it does look like a birdcage which is an excellent image to fit the po...
