No Matter

When the smiling mask removed

stiffened jaws by a forced laugh

at the end of every exhausting night

tongue like always swallow bitter

in back sore of the former lash by past

eyes only see the fog of thunderstorms in front

whole life as in the bottom of the rock cliff

a lifetime in grief prison.

Let the hypocrite say it’s okay

stuck in a maze of likes and hates

pay a mortgage debt that can not be paid off.

Those who are saturated in the illusion game

use the formula to say “no matter”

no matter to penetrate the stone

or jump high beyond the lip of sky.

No matter!

  1. I always appreciate the visual and literary work that you post and the juxtaposition of the two elements. The images and words communicate together very well.
    Very nice work, man!
