MIGUEL MERINO (2017)
I found great joy,
as I waltz through the globe.
Yet a misfit I was,
as I remained covert in an unseen robe.
I found emptiness in a place filled with the lack of void,
Yet I yearned and fancied,
by a utopia to be bewitched and employed.
I found an assemblages of personages; withering their ways,
Yet the act of ridicule destroys itself,
as it is it no longer received my praise.
I found peace in an incomprehensible wisdom,
Yet still in thrall to confusion & doubt,
of a solemn and glorious kingdom.
I found delusion paving the way to destruction,
Yet I was led to an eternal awakening,
Now sanctified, to the creator of lies have I become an obstruction.
I found many anomalies that caused harm to my worth,
Yet redeemed I was, and my heretic self erased,
As this was my second birth.
