In The Trenches

In the trenches knuckle and bump 
Loosing one's self, faceless 
On fading guiding principles 

I will wear a robe one-day     
Be christened in rivers  
Washing trench mud off   

To be without my original sin and some   
And walk on clouds, float that is better   
Yeah I will float on clouds, weightless   

Leave no scare of emotion on love, on family  
In projectile frustration,
From illusive goals   

Genuine smile manifested   
Without the usual backdrop of worry  
 And sorry would be a foreign word 

In a foreign language, distantly 
Unknown to me,  from another galaxy  
And cause of such will be absent too

I would know no such thing  
As a sporadic outburst   
Of frustration on attainment shy of 

 My heart would hold its worth
 Lighter than a grain of sand 
On weighing scale 

And I would be young at heart 
Beating slowly in desired rhythm 
Allowing me time, precious time 

Like a wine connoisseurs 
Smoothing feel on taste buds 
To enjoy happiness deserved 

For I would not have caused pain  
To warrant plasters on wounds   
From friendly fire  

And be enslaved by the material world 
To be envoys of the nomad 
Who pays no compromising tax on virtues   

I will wear a robe one day   
To be christened in rivers   
I pray that day comes   

Before I become  transfixed 
A stranger to my own shadow 
In fading identity
