Missed The Fine Print.

I am at peace with my death now
I have been cut down and quartered
alphabetically, via the fine print
included in life’s demands
of due diligence of which
I was made ignorant
by visions of grace that seemed to be
punched out and woven into the
intricate fabric of the life
that my fragile weave of soul
was knitted into.

Putrid and powerless
I wallow in the artificial wind
of my overblown hopes
which now flow over me
in the form of vulturous
past dreams and obsessions,
they possess my once life giving
veined soul with a poltergeistic
allegory of spiritual annihilation.

Fetal spirits of aborted ideas
scratch with their half formed fingers
at the windows of my condemned
house of thought.

I am comfortable with this
accosting of corrupted attributes.

Although I mourn the loss of
my children amongst the realization
of spiritual and worldly truths.

Allow my dead and impartial soul
therefore to become a righteous and fair
arbiter of future judgements
of other similarly deceived souls.

For this kind of equanimity,
of which I have been denied on this Earth,
is what I have desired more than any
worldly fulfillment and is what I long to see
restored to those others who
have been robbed of it.

I wish this in spite of the reality of my
having being denied it’s wonderful
empowerment whilst I dwelt
amongst the living.

Missed The Fine Print.

Artist's Description

This is about how my soul and life was unraveled by my own false hopes and dreams because of my blind faith in God’s grace and my naive belief in others, while all throughout my life, I should only have believed in my self and worked only with that belief.
This is my epitaph.
