Healing Achilles 'heel

during recent days frustrated. 
done the math beyond all doubt
facts and fiction separated
Achilles' flogged soul felt  the knout

showed self-imposed artificial tranquility 
the unknown an insignificant mystery
driving on the road of inability
the past declared ancient history

ignorance drowned in absurdness 
pouring pain fed wild frantic grounds
virgin era in balanced roundness
replaced stellar silenced sounds

Achilles' pained heel cured
future's solid foundation secured
