if i’ll tell my story to myself
to entertain my state of mind
i won’t fill my space with self-pity
from feeling withdrawn and partly empty
if pretense would make me look
an upright person getting off the hook
stinking stories from the wicked backdoor
won’t break my heart when roars are washed ashore
i will trust my own values and beliefs
neglecting phony news thriving beyond limits
embracing pure thoughts without fear
they will be filled with honest hopeful cheers

_______________


sometimes i walk
without my shadow following
with closed eyes
my spirit is on call wandering
in the black of time
it glides over the sea
not mindful of its mercurial height
until the zigzagging drop
became the close-mouthed dawn
