Am I Fooling Only Myself

A little encouragement goes a long way
to sustain entitlement to the name ‘Poet’
bearing arms of lead & ink
vigorously processing thought to print

My spiritual siblings for support
I carry the Olympian torch
staggering toward the finish line
locking horns with Father Time

By my own admission
I’m asleep at the wheel
& I honestly don’t know what I feel:
headache or heartache or nothing at all
