Writing and Reflections

Lost in this masquerade

as snarling beasts howl at dawn

Truth sings a sharp serenade

Small and scarred, I stand apart — afraid

wishing I didn’t see what I saw as battle lines were drawn

lost in this masquerade

Social graces serve to further this charade

conventions dictated by a crooked echelon

still, truth signs a sharp serenade

Humility fails those falsely portrayed

as warriors of light, justice, and brawn

lost in this masquerade

I’ll whisper when lies are conveyed

I’ll refuse, I’ll reject this role as pawn

Truth sings a sharp serenade

The game is changing, gone retrograde…

took a moment to catch on

No longer lost in this masquerade

Truth sings a sharp serenade

My everyday thoughts as they come to me

Ushma Patel

When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy, And the dimpling stream runs laughing by; When the air does laugh with our merry wit, And the green hill laughs with the noise of it.
