The Tena Poems – Truest Love – “Upon the Day you Arrive” – Romance – 11/6/2019

November 6, 2019

Upon the day when you arrive,
Adorned in something fragrant,
Dressed in something treasured,
It could be only love between, the threads of a garment,
The threads of a worn heart, of a torn heart,
That I’ve promised to mend,
So much alike the garments, I’d do away with,
So much alike the pain, I’d do away with.

Upon the day when you will climb
The reaches of our love,
I will be there to support
Your golden legs and the very home of heart
We’ve sworn to protect,
We’ve sworn to defend,
Beloved, allow my kisses to be swallowed whole,
Among all the beauty that’d never cease to be.

Face me, and I’ll treasure you,
Upon when you complete your climb.
Know that I’ve kept you strong,
As you’ve done the same.
I’ve nested a single seed,
In a small heart,
Where so much hurt has taken place,
And I will raise you, to even newer heights.

Upon the day when you arrive,
I’ll always be the man to see you survive.


Words of Wisdom – “A World of Personal Irresponsibility” – 7/20/2019

July 20, 2019

“To withdraw oneself from the responsibility in their tasks, is to willingly submit to dictation. It is because the gift of ‘responsibility’ is to charge oneself with one’s life. It is leadership, incarnate; responsibility, that is, is the governor, or the tyrant, not upon the other, but upon the personal action. What one disregards, when it comes to responsibility, is their inevitable submission before the dictator. The leadership of such a dictator, as with all dictators, will be merciless, and in this world of ‘personal irresponsibility’, there is no more a dictator desires, than first, his succession, and next, his ability to stomp a rebellion or an uprising, back beneath the soil.”
