Fortune

Fortune- in Reality-

favors not just the Brave,

but those with Wit enough

to regard the Grave.

What dreams have I- locked-

in some yellowing Scroll-

that Others will discover- nod-

or- ignore Them- all-

 

I wish I could get away

from all the distress,

all the pressure,

all the uncertainty.

I wish I had the means to

simply leave

and find a quiet place

where I could stop and look,

not think, just observe,

leaving all familiar faces behind me.

I wish I could find a place

where I wouldn’t have to worry

about being found

becauseĀ I wouldn’t be lost, anyway.

I just want to find a place

where I have no past

and no future

to worry about.

Where is the crossing

of the stars? Not Here,

as is desired-

Youths wish it’d appear-

 

though- Consequences

be neglected- Outcomes-

rarely what expected,

or what one dreams-

The Steps

Memorize the steps

you took, the Path left

will help as you move

forward, while you Journey yet.

 

Today’s date

attached to four names

I don’t recognize.

And I wonder

about names

attached to headstones,

about futures

attached to children

along with memories.

And these are people

who will only be remembered if

they fall under these circumstances-

if they had children,

if they are a character in someone’s story.

We remember historical figures

and celebrities

because of their national renown,

but who remembers

the little people

with their names printed

small

in newsprint?

Gulls are Harbingers-

as much as Robins, yet,

not appreciatedĀ as part

of Spring’s welcoming Quartet.
