Artist's Description

This etegami was inspired by the following poem. It was intended as a tongue-in-cheek poem that the author wrote to poke fun at herself, but I was moved by it:

I Told Me So

I know, I know
I won’t get my wish
The call won’t come
I won’t be the one.
Just sit back and sigh
As more chances go by —
See? I told me so.

No hopes to dash
No hills to climb
No dreams to break
No chance to fail
No pain, no crying
Much easier than trying.
See? I told me so.

I’m always right
So rarely wrong
No use stringing
My hopes along
No sweat, no strain
No fret, no pain
Just wait - wait -
Wait —
Till it’s too late.

Ha! I told me so.

(by Vicki Patschke)
