What is My Calling

What is my calling

To speak for those that are mute

Injecting logic

In this illogical world

Fighting the way I know how

With pen and paper

The written is the sword

I wield with honor

Far mightier than the tongue

Brandished til the day I die

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Heart And Mind Collide (Tanka)

Heart and mind collide

The mind questions intentions

The heart loves blindly

Seldom does logic surmount

Leaving love victorious


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~


Idle Hands

Idle hands do not an idle mind make,

For sitting in silence much effort does it take.

With unflappable thought the body grows more tired,

It is no easy feat to control synaptic fire.

When treated as sloth brain-work is mistaken,

Laziness it’s not, your logic is misshapen.

Without the strain of thought no greatness would exist,

No literature, no art, no inventions could persist.

So lest contemplation be treated as a waste,

You’re best to just say thank you with a smile on your face.
