Sapphire

The iridescent blue
Called to me once
The sky so far, the sea so strange,
Their turmoils, their dance.

The heat of Lanka
Baking the core of earth
And from its bloodied loins
Gave a Saturn birth

He was imprisoned
Under a throne
And I wonder
If I hear him moan

Riddled and lost
I write to make sense
The price rises high
When matter is less dense

But why blame matter
Gods there be, or you
The sea holds no promises
She can never be true

The sky makes the sun
Moon, and stars debate
Even feathers fall
Even air has weight

Put your hands in mud
Does it lie?
Is green better than blue,
Does it not die?

I seek forever
In an insignificant life
Look at humanity becoming
All of earth’s strife

But I look to me
And despite vanity
I become these colours
I am this reality

A Million Shades of Grey

Give up your expectations
and give in to your fate.
What is meant to be will be;
if it’s soon, it’s soon,
and if it’s late, it’s late.

Let go of that anger
I know its easier said than done –
For what use is the pain
that ends with a smoking gun?

Try and choose the quieter road
and do what should be done,
Then leave the rest to destiny;
all battles do not need to be won.

Give up your expectations –
that is the best, possible way
to learn life isn’t black or white;
it has blue and green and red
and a million shades of grey.
