Subjective Acceptance

Of roads not taken
Of paths un-trod
Of life’s inertia
Fulfilled or not

Others pass by
In themselves absorbed
intransient myopia
Spun out of control

The pages fill
With tears that fall
The emptiness of a silence
That can capture us all

The wasted seconds
Seemingly timeless years
Looking into mirrors
Trying to embrace your fears……
