Ode to Beauty

Either in the victor’s silken tent,
Caressed by his blood-stained hand,
Or by pudgy gold-ringed fingers,
In the back of a limo grand;

Etched in the colors of my ragged brush,
With the pearls of my words you shine’
Proud, exalted by my forlorn hope,
My muse, my soul, my all, but mine!

I have always been a great believer. I've flitted from one belief to another, from religion to atheism and from one philosophy to another, until I finally settled on J. Krishnamurti whose philosophy is that there is no philosophy. So now I firmly believe that there is nothing to believe. Now such a belief would, I believe, have been considered dangerous to society if the authorities had believed me to be of any consequence. No man of consequence they believe would waste his time on the pursuit of blogging!
