"So what is left of me? This poetry / Thousands of poems which I leave to you / Debris of a dream which never came true "


Transcendental Sonnet #1402:

Failure

 

Once I was believed to be anointed

To do important things before I die

Then I was fifty and disappointed

 

A failure who could only speculate

Somehow I knew I would never know why

This is that special cruelty of fate

Causing us to wonder as we blunder

Searching for some answer as the cancer

Eats away today and then tomorrow

Is our last and still there is no answer

Which is because there simply never was

 

So what is left of me?  This poetry

Thousands of poems which I leave to you

Debris of a dream which never came true

You are not a failure unless you believe you are. Your brilliance is evidenced in the poetry you write...now live the words and be a light unto a darkened world.
Love Chanti
