You are absolved
of all that you cannot say
of all that you cannot be
of all that you cannot write
of all that has come in your way
of all your unkind jealousy
of all your protective intensity
of all your imaginary fantasies
of all your borrowed philosophy
of all your control freak propensity
You are absolved
of all your mediocrity.

      I've always found that the problem with absolution is that, while it may give you a fresh start, it doesn't change you. Change within yourself being the necessary element of change in outlook and behavior, and thereby change in your sins and virtuous acts from then onward, absolution is of limited value.

      Ouch. What a wonderfully scathing yet creative absolution. I love the Wor play and the meaning. It's been a while since I came across such a marvellous meditation on mediocrity. Awesome.
