Down but Not Out


Caught in boundless spirals
with imminent full of doubt

Must accept unkind reality
of being down but not out

All dreams in past nurtured
now appear so far removed

Resolute earlier perspectives
for now stand disapproved

Transient phase of ambiguity
will eventually get to abate

Where most of expectations
with conveyances correlate

It's hard but not astonishing
was known since all along

For trudge to be demanding,
tad muddled and overly long

Perseverance with patience
with dogged kind of resolve

Plain means to an apt end
where puzzles on own solve

Time would stand a witness
vindicating current stance

The very logic of this ordeal
in challenging circumstance
