Clouds of Burden

Clouds of Burden

The agony of an unlived life
Sets a macabre tone, and
Makes one climb the height
Of purpose in vain.
I am going to shut the soul
To distractions,
And drink my liquid lessons
From the words.
Words can teach an individual
As good as it teaches a crowd.
Where will I find
The drop of contentment?
Living happens
Under the boots of survival.
No dark underpinnings,
In white pages.
The bird of the sky,
The nest on the height of the tree
All have risen
Beyond the herculean clouds of burden.
