he railed

he railed,
by what life
had done
the chances
he felt he
never had
before it had
all begun.
the losses,
the insults
the wrongs done
to him
his own faults
his visions
so dim.
the pains he had
the suffering he caused
if asked why his
answer would be
he pointed all
fingers outward
never directed within
his potential destroyed
this his greatest sin.
and yet when all was
said and done,
from himself he
could not run.

at last in peace
eternal repose
what could he
have been if
he were well
one can only

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
