Regain Your World

Regain Your World

A Poem by Gerry Legister

The dangerous world that we live in

In a world brimming with danger
where tragedy is no longer a stranger.
with so many voices that can lead us astray
They open new doors with the dawn of each day.
Terror saunter out unabated to pursue death,
and call down upon our soul a grief-filled burden
Strength holds when the love of humanity is broken.
Birth appears with the sublime and the disdain,
With anger, the posture reframes the sinews strain.
Borrowed time is a distant unforgiving friend,
Whose path suspend our brief respite to the end.
We pretend and wish most people could reverse
all the dreams they have lost in bitter remorse.
But nothing in the universe works forgiving better,
Then when we are at our worst distemper.
The opportunity comes to regain our soul,
from the kind of terror which pollutes the world.
We paddle with prayer to maintain composure
Pretend surfeiting was only a blip of anger.
Turn and try to live in a perfect ambiance unfurl,
the epitome of dreams merges to create a swale.
fear can’t fight the deeds that governor the insane,
with nebulous mentor the warp mind inset frame.
it’s a realm somewhere inside crying out for a change,
the bleeding heart wanders forlorn and deranged.
No contentment only movements together merged,
from anxiety and fear the claims are gradually purged.
brave wings can fly high; regain strength and soar
above static clouds making waves in the atmosphere.    
We thrive and survive when we have tried our utmost,
survival mode lives free from fear for better or worse.
Walk away from the snare and make the most.
Of what is waiting to appease the flames of pain,
Tears momentarily can only wash away the stain.
Subtle and subdued, reticent infiltration of evil restrained
While fortune favors our nation, the world you have regained.
is no longer the same that fell through trembling words of war,
Resonate feelings fall not too far from where we are.
Comforting each other until all our helpful spirits has come,
With heart and soul, proclaim overwhelming love to everyone
