DNA

How can I begin anything new with all of yesterday in me ?
– Cohen- ” Beautiful Losers”.
~
embellishing
my todays
building
upon
yesterdays
i unroll
life’s
coils
~
fate
tends
to foil
in parries
and thrusts
I’ve mastered
fencing feints
with mind
~
mind
is a magical
kingdom
unto itself
own
drummer
Pied Piper
and Alice
~
still very much
owning myself
I drop and lose
life in senior
moments
while valiantly
warding off fogs
of mind
~
faith
keeps me
centered and
firmly tethered
to my true love
while destiny
plays fast and
loose
~
ever game
to pick up
thrown gauntlets
I meet fate head-on
at times mauled
and bloodied…but
never ever backing
down
~
it
is
simply
not
in
my
full flowing
DNA
~
