    I've written hundreds of poems. I can't even count them. Always writing more. It's my great passion. I love reading others' poems too. My great fear is that I'll never be able to share them with an audience, stuck forever in my seclusion, obscure and hidden. Or worse, I will find a way to put it all out there only to be disregarded, rejected, or ridiculed.

    Troubled nights, I turn my head,
    from the end where I was led,
    looking back on things I've done.
    "Sigh, if only I've had more fun."

    I've played my board. Lost the game.
    When I began, things varied.
    Now, everything feels the same,
    with all the pieces buried.

    Tis thy flame….fear and reign…
    Saddest essence in thy end i tame…
    Sacred cove thy heart refrain….
    Thy battled few and fewer named…
    Solemn oath I will maintain…
    Wisdom is thy winners fame…
    and fewer know that knowledge tames…
    Into the flames few men will reign….
    Tis thy day the battle drains…
    Essence stays for men who acclaim…
    Thy simple pleasure and hearts maintained… swallow pride and vanity… live each day as only good men see…..a Rowl4nd99 poEm…

    The temple were thou heart strains…
    The wisdom and freedom to refrain..
    The bliss i need to fill thy void….
    The tears i hold to destroy…
    The pain we feel ebb and grow…
    So throw these seeds…our heartfelt greed…to feel pain thats follows thee and freedom to fly were there is no wants or need….. written by Rowl4nd99 on Instagram

    Thy test of thine
    Whence thy soul is thy mortals grow
    Freedom Flys and bliss that thrives
    A sacred cove and a love fortold…
    A beauty of whims thats is known
    Lonesome tones and rivers sown
    Thy fathomed few…..and twilight cue….now ebb and tone and lonesome stone……..thy heart is what thy hath grown…… written by Rolly Michael Diakiw Rowl4nd99 Instagram
