Recounting the Years

I grew into womanhood at 17
& mastered the art of seduction at 23
[or thereabouts, so it seems]

Became a mother at 28
& relearned familial love
[the truth behind Door #2]

Became bitter with life & an alcoholic,
four long years behind Door #3
[firsthand look at the core of hatred]


I’m at odds with my daemons,
properly respectful of their place in the scheme of things,
for Evil walks the four corners of Earth
to incite battle after battle in our pursuit of Truth

Reduce your luggage of its excess weight
& push the limits of fair debate
Pose no threat to self-respect
nor amplify its best-intended rantings
to a level beyond average acceptance
