Multi-Faceted Text [rev] - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

A sad crocodile failed to master a Spanish text - showing only
reptile brain limitations when confronting language intricacies,
exposing lack of common sense & bad visual ability, practically
blind and losing its crocodilian mind; escaped finally by turning
into a fairy and flying away - was a princess for a brief moment
tonight - now that is past and the headache

Destroys all happiness, at a loss to solve this dilemma, feeling
guilty for the sin of being stupid - Seth says all consciousness
picked their circumstances and focus-points before birth, thus
the crocodile chose to be so dense, unless the poor reptile did
not know how to create a clever mind; good intentions are not
enough, high ideals & lodestars do not help when a crocodile

Tackles life; a sudden belief in health did not come about and
laughter just vanished as I lost the right to good feelings - yet
this will not stop me from cherishing impossible dreams and
fleeing into fantasy to relieve imagination of all limitation - I'll
join Don Quixote in tilting windmills & if failure has me falling
and crying, I'll get up and try again because

THIS kind of challenge is fantastic; today suffering the pain of
failure, but tomorrow there shall be success again because
there has been success in the past & any one of my probable
selves, whether fairy or crocodile, will know how to create a
holographic rendition of a multi-faceted text…
