Irascible, Stubborn Me


Irascible Stubborn Me

By Tony DeLorger © 2011

Irascible stubborn stupid me,

when life contrives dictates a fee,

my sins and actions for all to see,

a fool is born and cast to be.

With rife and blinded wrongly doing,

I’ve fallen flat with no enduring,

facades the shells that I’m pursuing,

are empty now, all my undoing.

Chasing wind and fairytale,

I’ve fought for truth in tooth and nail,

to find a shallow life betrayal,

and now it seems I’ll bail.

Keeping feet upon the ground,

a viewpoint of my mind resounds,

to keep a firmer grip on bounds,

and keep my ego down.

For dreams are kept and now bereft,

my lonely thoughts now shallow depth,

from pushing me and haste at best,

I’ve learned to calm my will to rest.

I’m learning.

Thanks jimagain, glad you liked it.

Thanks to you Poetic Fool. We never stop learning, and the moment we think we know something is the moment the learning stops and we realise than we need to know more.
