By Henry Grieves

Vagueness in vogue
Truth be untold
We went to the manifestation
Of the manifest of what
Life is supposed to be
We vacillated
Upon an atom of
Cataclysmic proportions
For all eternity
Appropriated wisdoms
And fallacies
Clung together
In a paradox
Duped by the
Nonexistent conventions
Of reality
To protest with fervor
And defend vindictively
The incessant exploits
That independently summarized
Our existence
In the persistent
Circle of time
Ensured our fate
And guaranteed
Our mortality



HENRY GRIEVES lives in the USA with a sense of wariness toward the status quo. Inspired by punk music and Communist principles, he enjoys writing poetry that’s vehement and politically and socially conscious. One of Henry's goals in writing is to convey a charged message to the reader. Though not yet known outside of Internet forums, Henry is optimistic concerning his writing, and continues to scribble his general conceptions of society down on paper.
