After night of restful sleep
Post countless hours
of struggle for breath
Feel fighting fit

Small mercies appear
huge when daily
needs dissolve
as ice in water

Just read
what we live
everyday is no more
than karmic debris

if that be so
What about free will? was
that determined crawl out
of bottomless pit of despair

merely karmic debris?
That’s hard to swallow
It required “never say die”
Fighting spirit

Back against wall
Either person loses grip
Or calls upon unplumbed

having willfully
chosen latter
this “mystical quote”
Is tad hard to swallow

‘free conscious will’ does
Exist, powers that be, do relent
subsequently breaking chain of fate
recharting ordained
