Verse 22:  Elders

Verse 22: Elders

A Chapter by Glen Yumang Manese



There's great passive to give up.

Moreover, forget existence of you.

No heart or mind wills aspect to be.

Just submit to the lather of elders.

Listen to them the value to endure.

Matrimony exists to a conventional term.

Learn to adapt submission with emotion.

Love over time to seek before emptiness.

Seep-in deep within pores of skin.

Down to the bone, find softness of marrow.

Love an unwritten passage to recycle.

Write undying eviction of words.

Clause governs amendment time and again.

Never forget meaning has a definition.

Ends not at the altar, but keeps open-minded.

Eyes should blur to prism all true colors.

Grays turn shades to equalize unity.

Portray each day to canvas a new line.

Blemish erases night from guiding light.

Keep fighting only retreats to mend.

White flag stands to surrender in this bond.

Even is after perceivable lost to mourn.

Carries down is a long and winding road.

Directional angles are not linear lines.

Straight arrow of cupid makes confusion.

Infuse capability to a simple mind.

Love not just passing structure.

Build-on outer layers in finding.

Inside feeds a burning heart to flow.

Lifespan is a bloodline of pints.

Finding in-between perils keeps pursuit.

Loves more over to fight trials confront.

Put out last drop from collapse vein.

Lament tears flow red ink gradually.

Live on with a memory within heart.

Mind continues to act with the senses.

Breathe to exhale past releases sorrow. 

Long beauty never meets destiny.

Beauty fades to last article of thought.

Capture her particles to renewal.
