New Year's Irresolution (standard:poetry, 114 words)
Author: RozinanteAdded: Feb 25 2001Views/Reads: 2846/8Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
The sweet and fitting story of my life.

Voiced in slow beguiling sympathies, 

Doubts fill my hollow pre-existence 

And return me to a question long denied. 

What worth this life of blue monotonies 

Hemmed within a void between a void, 

The plodding weary days outnumbered 

Only by intentions and defaults. 

I scratch the shallow surface of experience, 

Shallow yet but deep enough to drown 

And die by that with which I lived, 

The timid hand that holds the timid sword. 

Why struggle for the unseen shore, 

That distant swelling radiance of light, 

When in these troubled waters of despond 

To sink would seem both sweet and fitting, 

Worthy of the tag ‘potential wasted’  - 

The sweet and fitting story of my life.
