Confession

Rating: 3.1

To say I'm without fear--
It wouldn't be true.
I'm afraid of sickness, humiliation.
Like anyone, I have my dreams.
But I've learned to hide them,
To protect myself
From fulfillment: all happiness
Attracts the Fates' anger.
They are sisters, savages--
In the end they have

No emotion but envy.

all happiness Attracts the Fates' anger. They are sisters, savages- In the end they have No emotion but envy.......great write about happiness, sorrow, fate, envy, angry, emotion etc. These all are happening only for the thick gravitational power of mind. Human mind is full of changing. It changes itself sometimes in good and bad. As the relativity of time, place and person happiness and sorrow comes to life. Fate is merely belief, not an exact truth.

A simple, stark but impactful rendition of the jostling of the human psyche.
