Bricks and Passages by Joie Schmidt

Passages
of trajectory fall
on silenced voices
proclaiming a philosophy
of instant gratification
of over indulgence
an insatiable urgency
overtaking sound mind
and purposed body
with a transitory fix
 
Let not such unsubstantiated
bricks, build walls in your days
let not, the blinding light
of superficial fixtures
distract the genuine
path within
remain steady
and just
with solid matter
that will always
withstand and resist
