Serial Haikus - Poem by robert dickerson

Have you defined yourself by denying?
You can give it up
Or stay the same.

Gradually, gradually,
Through hard work and candor
become what you desire.

Would you be a saint?
Through hard work and candor,
A fixer? OK, do.

Belief in a fib
Will cause you anxiety
Sooner or later.

Have you anxiety?
Search your hard drive
Delete the fibs.

    These aren't real haiku's. There is supposed to be 5 syllables in first and second line.... (Report)Reply
