Untruthful Alliance

A Poem by YouoweYoupay

Until it is undone, my poetry shall sing..




































Untruthful Alliance



Respect is a beautiful color

A sword in the hand of the strong

And a smileless delight

In eyes of others



Respecting oneself

Is only the beginning

Of a journey for you to behold

It is to impart repentance for sinning

And appreciate the young and the old


Respect gives rise

To love and sincerity

And dries insignificance

In the sun-bathed clarity


Within we find courage

And yielding spirits we find without

Respect is to devote compliance

Into what we could breathe without


It is to know stolen defiance

Against an untruthful alliance

Of lost familiar trails

Falling into plagued denials


Murmurs of Lucifer beautified

In false perfumes of unripe wings

Cherished, overused and undermined

But to think that integrity of kings

Had been long ago disqualified


And until all is undone my poetry sings

Respect is a beautiful, abused thing

Your words are true in this poem. Respect is very important. We must do our best to be honest and the rights things. I like the story and the strong ending to the excellent poem.

Absolutely wonderful write. Not only did you delve into a topic not usually imagined for poetry, but you sis it with lyric loveliness and deep insight.

This line:
"Murmurs of Lucifer beautified

Good Lord, that works well.
Again, Wonderful. Thank you for sharing this~

I really enjoyed the first stanza! Smileless desire invokes a powerful, conflicting image, and forces a pause to consider. I enjoyed the fluid language of the poem, and the respect it earns.
