a bit of reflection on myself. Looking back at things that i have written sometimes annoys the hell out of me...at times i seem to live in self-pity.

Spineless Poet

 

 

There is enough blackness

to darken hope

for light to do nothing 

 

There is enough evil

to pollute the mind

for goodness to do nothing

 

There is enough sadness and misery

to depress and kill will

for happiness to do nothing

 

Yet I sit here

and write a poem

 

There is enough self pity and laziness

to write poems

for confidence and pride to do nothing
