But (+1)

Either I’m right

and you’re wrong

Or you’re right

and I’m wrong

Or we’re both wrong

—but we both can’t be right

 

(St. David’s Pennsylvania: October, 2020)

 

 

 

Arbitrium

 

Are we doomed to be unhappy,

or does it involve a choice

Do our feelings link externally,

giving outside forces voice

Do we choose the pain and misery,

as they cross our beaten path

Can they exist if our wills resist

—muted and outcast

      'Are we doomed to be unhappy,
      or does it involve a choice
      Do our feelings link externally,
      giving outside forces voice'
      lines of ever precise incisions, wonderful to read - impossible to not contemplate, all in all another brilliant write!
