applaudere


Humans applause;

a soothing rainfall in

summer. the soul labours

and desperately yearn for

it. unfortunately, it is

intermittent


I want to be able to say;

”T’was thy satisfaction I lived.

T’was your glory I lived

This is what I rehearse every day

on this pilgrim path.

Because this is what

I want to evoke when I stand before you.


The true essence of life is to be satisfied and grounded by the satisfaction of God, as a true custodian of heavenly policies


For my orientation, I chased after embers in fading skies. I became a slave to the noise within my own heart when the music distorted. when the applause faded into thin air.


I was taught;

”thunderous applause is your crown of victory. It is your validation of exustence”


So I lived, every day;

Aching for the ovations, the endorsement, the approval, and the acceptance of mortals, to validate my significance


Who hates the rain when it is wild and agreeable to the soul’s desires? No one!

Sadly, it’s not lasting. I won’t succumb to it. Deep inside the walls of our own souls, the unfading handwriting is clear; ”YOU ARE WHAT I ADORE.


This benevolence is unloaded, so we travel with empty bags; the applause of men

    This is such beautiful poetry and while, as you say, it is only intermittent , it sounds like a symphony when it happens. Wishing you well in this very strange year.
