THOUGHT-CRIMES OF A STREET PHILOSOPHER

IV - RAGING SUN


I feel a fire burningdeep within:
a cosmic, unquenchable, ragingsun
      hungrily ablaze,
             an effulgent, inner longing
for unattainable social ideals.

I visualize a different world:
one free of chaos, oppression,and fear -
      a cooperative global democracy -
might I live to see this incredibledream?

      waiting...
I sit in the lap of my true mother-
      long-suffering, still beautiful,
             the blue/green Earth

      meditating...
my life is guided by my truefather -
      eternal, omnipotent,
             the mysterious Universal Spirit
 

- T. H. Keyes
