WordPress – #Daily Prompt – Congregate

In my life, I have seen many come to congregate

Waiting with bated breath as it fascinates

That only a handful gather to pursue wisdom

While ignorance more often rules the kingdom

It seems we need a smattering of deeper stuff

At times, it seems we’re playing blindman’s bluff

Swinging madly into the emptiness of hot air

While clinging strongly to foundations not there

Nights fill with empty pumpkin heads of illumination

Days filled with way too, too much procrastination

It is said that first step in resolution is to know the problem

Yet so few want to recognize it might be us and not them

Yes, far too often we turn out to be our own worse enemy

I look out into the blackness like night and wonder why it’s so hard to see…
