Sharing the creation process when writing Pious Fools…
Life is the summation of experiences encountered as we go through life; challenges, choices, never walking the same path twice. Our decisions throughout life have consequence. These choices may seem to echo throughout the universe though they dwell within the tiny circle of our own lives. Many writers like myself draw upon life’s’ experiences to create poetry, prose, all fiction based upon life occurrences. I believe when we have created a piece that gives the reader cause to reflect on the subject that we are writing; we as writers have met our goals. We have went to that place within ourselves to find answers, we have ask the questions and try to create something of substance from the words that have been given to us. The wish for me is the same as I wish for all of you; that may the well of words never dry up…and that each of us will always have that unquenchable thirst to write.
“The piece below was created from the death of a parent and the greed of relatives that count the minutes; however, in the end their guilt is timeless.” Eajm
I did not see my mother shut her weary eyes,
I was not allowed to say a final good-bye; she
simply went to sleep while those around her
thought about the coffers they would soon reap.
Like painted whores around the coffin thinking
only of the win, no thought that the consequence
of their gain; carrying around their lifelong sin.
I frown when I hear church bells ring, I find discontent
in the songs the pious sing; born under a lifetime curse,
and I have always search for self-fulfillment and worth.
Do not fret about me as I have walked this way before,
I have always heard the transgressors mighty roar; living
in silence, living a nightmare, who cares.
As these piousness fools thought they could live, break all of God’s rules; living
without the end result in mind, now they feel the fear of pain;
reliving their guilt again and again.
