Poem #20


I surrender
To this moment
I surrender
To the next
I surrender
To the joyful
I surrender
To the vexed
I surrender
To tomorrow
And to yesterday
I surrender
To the sorrow
From the games
We sometimes play
I surrender
To the naked
I surrender
To the dressed
I surrender
To the fickle
And the easily impressed
I surrender
To the gone before
And to the left behind
The gone before
They are no more
Except inside my mind
I surrender
To the nightmares
I surrender to the dreams
I surrender
To reality
And whatever reality means
I surrender to the letting go
It’s the only holding on
Letting go
Is letting go
Until letting go is gone
I surrender
To the mountain
I surrender
To the lake
I surrender
In the garden
To a talking snake
I surrender
To the holy book
Just pick me any one
Holy is as holy does
Except in having fun
I surrender
To the let it be
And to the
Oh let’s wait and see
And to those
Who prune the Knowledge Tree
That keeps us all in prison
I surrender
For the mad ones
I surrender
For the sane
I surrender
For the lost and found
Who are found and lost again
I surrender
For the mild
I surrender
For the meek
I surrender
For the deaf and blind
And the ones who cannot speak
I surrender
For the hero’s
Sitting on the fence
Who never leave the comfort zone
At their own expense
I surrender
To security
Even though it don’t exist
I surrender for the losers
Who were crossed off Schindler's list
I surrender
To computers
And to mobile phones
I surrender
For the children
Being murdered by the Drones
I surrender
To the Facebook
A communications con
I surrender
To the meat hook
It dangles me upon
I surrender
For the Muslins
I surrender
For the Jews
I surrender
For the others
Who never make the news
I surrender
To the hash pipe
And a few pints
Down the pub
I surrender
To the seven dwarfs
And three men in a tub
I surrender
To the stars above
I surrender
To the push and shove
But don’t you dare
To call it love
It’s just a deep obsession
