Despite myself

Threatened by the unknowable

We stand still frightened

Panicked from the unbearable

Shamefully we stop fighting

Allured by desire we become vulnerable

And the wake-up call leaves us suffering

Obliged to tolerate the unfavourable

We are left alone agonizing

We think we are unbeatable

But life leaves us crawling

We hold others accountable

For our misery and disheartenment

Until we lose faith, moral, and virtue
