One Hundred Words A Day
Tuesday, October 20, 2009


It takes a lifetime
to fill in the blanks
to connect the dots
to figure it out

Be who one wants be
Refuse, firm and flat
Accept, no matter what
Realize life, a reflection merely.

It takes one second
to erase the slate
to rupture the link
to void one's entire fate.

to cease being whole
Again, dumb and mute.
Helpless, with no role
to fulfill, unsuited.

A lifetime reversed.
What good is it now?
The synapses that zigzag and crisscross
are tangled and mangled
The spirit imprisoned and incapacitated,
does not manifest its agitation
to demand restitution.

Time drags on.
