The Retribution Of The Human Spirit: 5 Poems
Author: Colin Stewart


A jigsaw puzzle and there you sit
as the metaphor for life has suddenly hit.
Something went missing and this is it
when certain pieces do not fit!


With capricious behavior and character flaws
the search for perfection has become a lost cause
as they succumbed to the depths of a demographic well.
The marketing of human nature is never an easy sell!


Society's parameters made them weep
so certain individuals conspired to leap
into a nightly repose many call sleep
by refusing to conform and count the sheep!


The heart of a man on open display.
The memory of his love would never stray
and even in death he found a way.
The Taj Mahal still stands today!


Maybe if we could only try
to live our life without a lie
and then we'd know the reason why
that surely Jesus did not die!

Your oems are always food for thought...

Great poem,fantastic imageries.I guess life is a gigsaw puzzle and some pieces do not fit and it is up to us to go on looking for a piece that fits or accept that things can't be perfect all the time.I also think that society's parameters are good for nothing because it leads to massification and losses.We can't close our eyes and conform to what violent our identities.We can't sit and wait for Godot.Besides i do think that what still remains is love:the love we give and the love we receive.It is our private Taj Mahal.
