Confession

Confession

There's a slow leak
inside my life-support
systemation

Refueling is essential
for my own 
self-preservation

The blessed leak
drains again my reserve
~rationalization?

perhaps...

But without it
I've no use for that quick
consolation.

Fix the leak?
I don't believe I could
~confession?

Yes.

But not
without
contention!

Would it be ok to say, 'all systems go!'? (sorry 'bout that, that scenario would have to be 'concurrent systematic failure') So sad my friend. so very, very sad to be human sometimes...but wait there's more. Great write and told right too! Clever, clever!

Every word poignant. A window into out circular thoughts that eventually bring profound insight.

Yes, it give the term "consolation prize" a whole new meaning... Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for visiting!

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
