A Profligate Heart

I at times wonder at my life...

over years I dare not count...

I do as I have done and will do again...

ounce for ounce and pound for pound...

metering out as I meet my fate...

with as much abhorrence as pleasure...

the absurdity appreciated for its futility, finality and cause.


You see me as a well deep mind...

I see myself as a giving soul...

who for my giving have nothing to repine but gratitude not given...

my position slandered to the lack of understanding and fear attending...

least someone should ask why I exist at all...

and why the world, spinning out of control should need a mute to intercede when it goes on course...

with snipers method to an end that most would find revolting.


I say to the last...

as I will say before and may have at first...

that humans deserve what birth they have for chose they once before with prejudice...

but will they believe it? Not at all..

complaining is all they care to utter...

with no more thought then...

breaking bread and feeding their stomachs but not their minds.


It is easier to blame what one cannot see...

a solace to the discontent with matters that oft were brought on themselves...

by themselves they cannot see eye to eye but I can see them as they are...

and that is seeing enough for my eyes...

more then I care to but cannot stop...

for such is my fate and words to that end...

and in that end I find myself...

reborn.

I really like this pieces...it takes on an interesting slant on life and how we think and feel with many excuses along the way...to justify.

And in such justifications... if you find yourself there in you could become one with your justification... or change its course and come up with another better lived with.

This is very deep and thought provoking to me. Well done Jaggedfrost, you always seem to have a different slant on life which is so refreshing.
