Why Now?

an outstretched arm
an unheeded alarm.

an eerie premonition
an assembly that should have followed the vision.

another voice in the dark
another wantonly ignored spark.

someone heard a scream
someone should have awoken from their dream.

who would have thought anything of that annoying question?
who would have been grateful for that thoughtful mention?

we are the silent children
we speak but no one listens.

even free verse SHOULD rhyme.

I'm not sure if there's a point to this story but I'm going to tell it again.

I've been wilfully caught up in the self-defeating quest to get to know myself for years. I've never expected anything beneficial to result from such a quest. I tend to evoke extremely polarised reactions from people I get to know in passing. Consequently, only those people who know me inside-out would honestly claim that I'm a person who's just "alright." It's not a coincidence that the description I've laid out above has no fewer than, title included, eleven references to me (make that twelve). I'm affectionately referred to as "Ego." I think that last statement might have given away a tad too much. Welcome Aboard.
