“Silly Old Fool”

 

God help me…

That I still believe in love at first sight

That I can still trust despite life’s vicious bite

That I can still find a way...

Even after having that trust violated time and again

When those nearest and dearest have bared fangs

And clawed at my back…

When the scars healed…

I forgave and forgot the attack

 

God help me…

To walk in this world and seek the fresh and new

Among decay and rot

To help from not becoming so jaded

I would lament what I do not have

And be blinded to what I have got

There’s this gift been bestowed…

Nothing earned…

Nothing owed…

That was never asked for nor desired

Tried so hard to deny it

But here at it once more

Like some automaton programmed to “self de-construct”

Not caring how…

Lost and confused

Gone astray wandering aimlessly

How is it that when I open my eyes, that i had closed to pain…

I find that I am back home…

Once again?

How is that even remotely possible?
