Would they unashamedly accept infamy?

Paper cranes crowding milling around
Floating clouding an antagonized mind
Fair proposition to a disturbed frown?
Rights to peaceful privacy was divine

Accord space to one tortured unfairly
Legacy of noble intentions in the open
How one yearned to bask in rare ecstasy
If only one dared to seek for assistance

Friends were there and ever willing
Would they unashamedly accept infamy
To be seen with those discarded beings
Down and out their unsolicited destiny

  1. Would they unashamedly accept infamy
    To be seen with those discarded beings... some won't and didn't but if you can find a friend who loves no matter what... all right then. :) Nicely written, Hank

  2. Choices can define in such a moment indeed

  3. interesting verse for a very cool picture....
    i wonder why we dont accept friends and their thoughts...
    thinking we know better at times...
    but then again we are the ones that have to live with it
    but our choices can affect well more than ourselves....

  4. A lot of melancholy in that lonely soul...

  5. Good picture and a very food for thought poem.
    Well written Hank.

  6. Interesting take on this photo of so many screaming interpretations! Perhaps we need to accept that we are alone in the physical sense, and if some follow/support then that is the bonus...Enjoyed your thought provoking poem, Hank

  7. I love every line, a powerful and profound piece of work. I am the sort to bottle up and go my own way
