This is one of those poems… Directly from me, stream of words webbed by something under the surface.

Rendered helpless

from the get go.

Innocent and blameless

growing slow.


All life held back by

past as useful aliby.

Ungrateful lullaby

Life screams at you;

“It is time and it is nigh.”


But that perseverance

shapes your presence.

Slips through fingers

at infinite rate

as you rage and plan.


Growing to the age

unable to learn the ways.

Covered by a misty haze.

Future is an obstacle

neatly placed.


Flicker in the universe.

Eon that had passed.

From the get go to the end;

rendered helpless
