Poet Bio

With the four seasons
Who knows what! It can be any
Who can tell left from right
When all seems the same
I remain unwavering

It cannot be with all these
That earth be jellyfish
When man made of sterner stuff
Yet be like boneless
I remain unwavering

Call me liar
Call me fake
Call me prideful
Use all forms and shapes of bricks
I remain unwavering

Selfworth like self-love
Is my ground and rock
Who else looks afar
When all is caged
I remain unwavering
