    I'm wondering why my comment about Matins seems to have been repeated (not by myself) .

    8 person liked.
    5 person did not like.

    I liked the Third Stanza:
    ' How can you understand me,
    if you can't understand your self.'

    This is not your poem. Good try though. Its by John Donne.

Confession

To say I'm without fear--
It wouldn't be true.
I'm afraid of sickness, humiliation.
Like anyone, I have my dreams.
But I've learned to hide them,
To protect myself
From fulfillment: all happiness
Attracts the Fates' anger.
They are sisters, savages--
In the end they have
No emotion but envy.

[Hata Bildir]
