Racing with blinders

It was planned investigated and edited 
Measures were interwoven so as to assure;
And in the end success was achieved;
Acknowledged and accredited master of self-survival
     You must have been quite busy I imagine.
      I suppose I’m to offer you kudos;
      Since I never saw the final outcome coming;
     And that in its self-had to have been a bonus
I was young and doubtlessly deserved it;
So I let it go thinking in the future;
Maybe you might feel vindicated;
But apparently motivations go beyond vindications..
       So okay I feel bad “real bad”
       And sometimes I forget myself;
       And let the water run down my face;
        Over the distain that manifest it’s self through selections
And time doing what it often does for some;
Gave me the courage to be,
Open and less self-protective;
But some of us never conquered fear.

    your mastery of words and the way you make them flow is poetry it self. and the title was perfect for this piece. great work with the punctuation that made reading as enjoyable as the piece it self.
