Karma's Knocking

For those of us who live logically,

for those of us who see,

for those of us who reasonably,

try to live poetically,

there comes a time, resignedly,

we all will face despondency

and our lacking of diplomacy

may hinder our attempts to be

a righteous soul untouched by thee

a righteous soul made right by thee

a righteous soul coerced by the

less than righteous claim to be

firm and stoic and better than me.


I round out the numbers again and again

and I am the cage you put me in.

For every breath you sneak by me is another to define my misery.


I wake to the possibility

of your death on my doorstep.

I am what I am and my foolscap

tells me so.

I am what I am and you know

your time is up.


My placement in the stars outweighs who you are.

Karma's knocking.

Firm believer in Karma. My best friend was raised in a Karmic atmosphere. He had a strong influence. I like this very much. Gonna read it again. Tell your good angel to stop arguing with the bad angel. Best thing to do is ignore the little bugger, but not completely. You'll be in danger of being blinded by your own light.

Beautiful work fifi! Peace

Druid Dude - As always, thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts. My good and bad angels are too alike to see them individually at times ;)
