Let Go 2/29/2012




Too ready to blame herself,

she apologized even to her cat.

Locked into unworthy, she shouldered

a weighted bag of self-servitude.

Waddling... tottering, she was

on the brink of old fashioned calamity.

Advantage – everyone else;

game point – never hers… wearing

unnamed guilt dragged shoulders down.

Magnetic appeal to users, she was chosen

to display their depravity – just another

emotional burden added to the pile.

Moving wouldn’t help; she tried that.

Aimless, thumbing a recreation calendar,

her eyes stuck to Aikido – confidence builder…
