In Trial

In Trial:

 

In trial

Of earth

Around the cause

Of mysteries birth

 

Scores of thoughts

Mostly, dreadnought

Of death

And pain

Lay at my feet though not in vain

Till my sun

Never rises, mornings, again

 

In trial

Of earth

A course of force reckless

Of course

 

May I live till my days?

Live until no more play

Or lust for life, left

No longer stowed-away

in my life’s scabbard

 

In trial

Of earth

Of earth

Of earth

Until ventures cease

Spared from a life’s last….

Until my salt is all spent

from sweat and tears of life’s dear costs
