Another story altogether…

It’s just like me to share the stage
I feel the pain I’ve dealt
I’ve smelled the darkness of hell
and reaped the pleasures heaven sent

I’ve served on a jury, sure of guilt
I’ve been a catalyst for change
I’ve known the mundane & the overzealous
mistrusting them all the same

I’ve reached beyond my past
and settled for less than I deserved
believing in experience all the same
and that some things happen indifferent to desire
and inconsistent with our best interests

Entanglements

Can’t squeeze out any more words
of importance to the plot
caught thinking only of business matters
doing whatever I ought
factoring in all things equal
to tomorrow’s sequel
