Tempted

Clearly knowing it is not the thing

having have been told explicitly so

the heart still wanders and holds

what is not there for what

who knows

Living the truth as it is

each day every day

being in the moment

still holding on to victimhood

trying to placate a wounded

ego of the self

nourishing a pain

nurturing a wound

to celebrate a helplessness

when well,action is all that is needed

is a story one likes to live

for one’s own doom!
