we’ll find the
answer …

NB : there is a film attached for all fools.

Posted by on May 18, 2016 in Poetry

Might the cause of my misfortune
live somewhere beneath the
seemingly clear reasons

Somewhere darkened, and
beyond all my prior courage.

And if so, might I find such
courage to face all
that will from this moment,
become uncertain.
