Good and Bad

My own maze of a
mind is dangerous

a moment of fresh
air, and on the edge

and suddenly I
question death

For who am I to
think that I can
defy the normality
of life?

In a strange path I
walk, but where are
those who follow?

Is it only like a
fool I spin this
endless web of
spontaneous desire?


That perhaps my
loneliness in other
words is just a
fragment

of my denial, for
personal safety and
self-respect.

For others dare not
walk on flaming
coals in fear
they'll burn their
feet


Yet... does it make
me a legend?

One that does not
get remembered but
somehow nature can
maintain, 

and by which
outcasted spawn can
be regressed -

Not even necessarily
through my own
conception. 

Irrational? maybe...
yes

Like the greyish
bleak clouds that
cover up an
illuminating moon, 


Inconspicuous, self
righteous or lost
without a clue?

To whom do I owe
this frailty blame?
If I am, in fact, 

the ONLY one... then
why, and will it
ever change?
