To Speak by Conjecture - by Bob Atkinson

(c)2015 Bob Atkinson
how do we communicate
how do we trade ideas
by fixed principle?
or,
questioning what stands for real?

tell me if you believe
value of your burdened ties
or lies of other people's screams
who cry dreams not satisfied?

do we agitate when we
attempt to influence fate
can we offer value
to an entire human race?

will we in our travels
adjust our morality for a cause
or wander down a pathway
which slams all things observed?

by questioning bright lights
do they give off dust
or will they illuminate
our bodies as we rust?

why, in nature's conquest
of random acts without constraints
do we sympathize with hate
when love's a better gate?

a gate through which we pass
on our journey to bright stars
pillars denoting freedom
to question then discard
