Sing The Wonder [rev] - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

For being the creature I am I take full responsibly
unable to concentrate, unable to master dislikes,
unable to conquer translation by analysis of the
information when it was boring - all I can do’s try
to make up for deficiencies offering unconditional
love - as a worker of any kind I was useless, but
at least I tried, though I failed most spectacularly

I really tried I can honestly say, put in all the effort
though never managed to conquer the little alien in
control living in my head - maybe I’ve reached the
end of my reincarnation cycles in a magical world
where enthusiasm, dreams and ideals are enough -
I leave my legacy in writing since discussion never
worked; I confess my faults and leave it all to

Youth to reach a place where conquest’s real, one
where I’ve loved, and still love deeply, which is the
most important thing in my life - I love all, will stay
true to it for ever, for all eternity, our descendants
will make more progress, & I take ALL love I have
given & received with me, which includes loyalty
and friendship, honesty and integrity - and this is

So precious, a treasure more beautiful than any
symbol I’d like to remember it by - grander than
diamonds, gold or other jewel, more enchanting
than crystals & song - when I turn into a melody,
I’ll sing the wonder of love, wisdom and joy

Topic(s) of this poem: death, feelings, love

    when i turn into a melody,
    I'll sing the wonder of love, wisdom and joy

    WOW! ! ! ! where can I vote for line of the year?

    amazing depth of realness

    I hope I can just hum
    led zeppelin
    for a few minutes
    before I get locked up
