writing about my life

Guttersnipe (poem)

leave a comment »

The secret pattern behind all failure and madness 
is that we dared to be real and show our sadness

I have seen the great illusion that rules now
we took the punishment for all as if by a vow

Where merit gets confused with selfish conceit
and knowledge with possession of a cheat sheet 

guilty, superficial souls dumping their trash
while the vulnerable wear their wounds like a rash

I fuse my being into what I learn 
and know what I have seen to burn

though lately found just in the gutter or bars
I would still insist Oscar, we are for the stars
