Bloated Morality

Table of gold
inlaid jewels
(greed)
set with ignorance
set with entitlement
set with rampant disregard
for anything that impedes
destroys
tests
the belief held
the superiority felt
enter the conclave.
Come one
come all
insinuate self
introduce sin
into the kingdom of god.
Succulent dreams
temptations
likes of which
never seen
forever shrouded
mist of needs.
Delusions
atop the high horse
(pride)
fall will come
no more hiding
no more denying
tarred
feathered
fall from grace
fall from……
Spread before the altar
tales told
inanities muttered
shouted
performed on roof tops.
(Too little.
Too late.
Broken trust.
Broken faith.)
Silence 
forever quoted.
Lies 
epitome of truth.
Judged nevermore
at the golden gates.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom

  1. I sometimes think we live in a world where we are expected to embrace greed and pride, those who advocate care and compassion are presented as weak and so the perception is formed. Life can be a struggle to change this. A nicely phrased poem 🙂
