Poesy plus Polemics

self “Self Portrait Abstract” by guyver1

independence a privilege

demands that you

stand on your own two feet

if you have only one

then please lean upon me

if you have none at all

I would happily carry you

knowing that when we arrive

where the choice must be made

where the work must be done

where the living is hard

and the dying is easy

you’ll then face the challenge

to do it yourself

take possession of circumstance

plumb all the powers

the inborn resources

refute every notion of destiny

never mind your beginning

just realize that you alone own

all the methods and means

to define your own end
