Accepted Alibis


I suppose I should have listened
and never turned away.
But noisy voices in my head
have always had their say.

I thought the voices knew what’s best.
They told me we were through.
I turned my back and refused to hear
all the excuses from you.

You could not call.
There was no way.
You’d keep in touch when free.
And I accepted all the alibis
because I could not see
any possible solution in sight
that would change this frustrating scene.
So here I am thinking again.
I suppose I should have listened
and let all of this finally end.

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
