The Almighty Apathy


I know the sound
I know the call
But will I answer it?

It is soothing
It is comforting
But I could not bring myself to trust

I know the way
I know the path
But still I can not follow

It looks alluring 
It looks inviting
But my foot doesn't move an inch

I know the sign
I know the feel
But it doesn't come to me

It gives the clue
It gives the hint
But it doesn't hold any meaning 

I know the choice 
I know the consequence
But it doesn't work for me

It is clear
It is simple
But my mind still unsettled

I know the reason
I know the cause
But it is not easy to understand

It could be accepted
It could be forgiven
But can not be reversed again

I know the result
I know the end
But I don't have a power to say it

It hides in plan
It hides in scheme
But everybody is oblivious about the intention

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
