Here and there ~ Part 2

In those early joyous days,

in times long gone now far away;

rational reason still to gain;

thought from heart, vacant brain.

‘I think, therefore I am’ once said

a Philosopher released long dead.

Stranger thoughts have been conveyed,

to minds quite thwarted, yet unmade.

Arise my champions, grown from seed;

come do battle, help me please.

Guide me forward, abolish greed.

Worthy warriors – blessings all;

hear my summon, heed my call.

First, I call on Courage, request that you endorse,

strength of conviction combined with force.

Allied with Courage, I plan to battle,

confront rage, withdraw, shake, rattle.

You Knowledge gathered,

learned, studied, read

facts in abundance

inside my head.

Present said facts in single file,

prioritise, order, self-denial.

Knowledge deployed strategically well;

informed reaction rings all bells;

Maturity, age, time well observed

Wisdom to Knowledge help and preserve.

Faith, I now ask you,

stay make your way

to front this army,

coloured not grey.

Grant us that feeling,

kindred spirit named Hope;

silencing doubts,

fears envelope.

Put paid to the worries,

an end to the fears;

give Strength to make Courage;

a future more years.
