The Riddance

I guess I'm feeling bitter tonight. Maybe not bitter, in many ways I am and feel triumphant but disappointed that the "game" has not been fair. I wrote this, off the cuff. I'm going to call it:
The Riddance
There are things in this life and of this world for which there are no second chances. It is a myth that the sun always rises. There are offenses that apologies cannot assuage. There are hearts that never mend, and trust forever lost. Every day comes with choices, the seen and unseen, heard and unheard, spoken and moot. It is what you choose to do in solitude that defines you. The secrets that you keep, your level of grace, character and integrity stand before you. Some of us are intrinsically open and trusting and honest, some of us aspire to learn. Others are cunning, Machiavellian, pariahs with no aspirations other than the survival of said deceptions. Some will be revealed, some will remain veiled, but karma awaits all. Stop. Think. And, never underestimate the power of Kali.

I love this piece that you have written. I am at a place right now where I know things can't be taken back in the way of time, there are no second chances in the way of time. That is hitting me hard. I loved the eloquence of your passage. Thank you for sharing it. :)

Wow. Talk about a moment of clarity. Occasionally I get into a mindset in which I write things in a similar idea, but mine are more like nonsense poetry, and make little sense to those not myself.
