Poem / Poetry – “Integrity’s Touch”

Hello everyone.

I’ve written a poem in between sips of wine for National Drink Wine Day – I arrived a little late to the party but better late than never!

Enjoy it folks and comments are always welcome , even more so if they are wine related 🙂

Integrity’s Touch (by David Ellis)

Atrociously immaculate
The lasting effect that
You have on the world
Can be broken in an instant
If integrity’s touch is severed

Exquisitely destitute
Digging for deeper meanings
Human nature at its most complex
Unfathomable in its context
In seas of convoluted dreams

Deliciously quaint, ancient
Different ways of coping
A maelstrom of emotions
With only one way out
Onwards into battle

Perilously silent
Unyielding to anything
Slaying diabolical inhibitions
Preventing you from achieving
Lofty goals and ambitions

Tradition dictates
That to leave an enduring legacy
One must have lead
A life deemed to be worthy

So above all else
Be yourself
Don’t let anyone
Poison the well
Be prolific, kind and generous
And if that doesn’t work
Tell the universe to back off
At least until we’ve finished this glass
