Wishful Absolution

Wishful Absolution

A Poem by RomaJ

Let the good times roll -
Like seasons past,
Down streams of Yesteryears.
While Autumn keeps
Its fallen leaves,
On the present.
Upon the graves;
Where no more hopes,
Nor dreams may lay.
Just an endless,
Ever-changing Sky -
Indifferent.
To the fleets of forgotten causes
that ceaselessly,
passes by.
Thinking the winds will turn the tide.
But the battles,
already lost.
Before the sun went down in shame.
The moon,
yawns -
At the brevity.
And the Earth,
Just shakes her head.
For fools fighting
Endless seas
fighting
Cease fighting.
Liquid money and a pocket full of holes;
Deepening debts -
In depths of whiskey and cheap wine;
Just to drown out sorrows.
If only for a moment,
Numb.
In shallow breaths
of cigarettes.
With a solemn gaze -
Fixed in wishful,
Absolution.

Whatever happened to the social consciousness raised in the 60's and 70's? It seems we have taken a giant leap backwards in the past 10 years and it gets a little worse every day. Whiskey and cigarettes might make it seem a bit better for a five minutes, but when the buzz wears off, we know we have wasted time. Powerful words. Lydi**

we wish for absolution, but don't stop hurting ourselves...things keep getting worse, and time just moves on, ignoring us---we can't take it all back, and one day we will surely regret how we have wasted our time on earth seeking things that don't matter in the end.

I'm sure there could be numerous interpretations for this but the one that sticks with me most is what I've experienced through others. I've seen many drown their sorrows with wishful absolution. The helpless souls that are too far gone to bring back any speck of decency or respect to themselves.

As though this was written in a smoky bar, you seem to have looked around and wrote it all down.

Nice writing Roma.
