Math Challenged

Confident finger placed
On pulse of self, others
A gross miscalculation

Inhalations exhalations
Have turned on me
Own house disarrayed

Should shine rays
In life’s fray
On self first

Once hang of pulse
Count is clutched in fist
only then abroad foray

Only thing to be counted
Upon in life is that
It cannot be counted upon

Now know
I am truly
Math challenged
