Treasure Island

Dash Black


A Man Resigned


Head bent down low
He expects the looming fall
Disgracefully resigned
A man lies on the ground like a wet dog
Arms, knees are weak and heavy
Lonely and so called he lingers by
Survival of the fittest in his heart
A man starts to fight himself to death
Strangling his own throat for final damnation
Shoulders falling down low
He accepts the free-fall
The autopilot in human lives
Sorry for his past he resigns to nature’s course
There is no point betting on his force
Down below there is a land he goes
The surface anticipating his human fall
Eager to break his bones and crush his scar
He can neither reverse the time
Nor the wrongs committed
His is the sacrificial consequence he has to bear
So from the top of his spiritual tower
On the edge of his human dome
On the peak of the psychological mountain
A man resigned must fall!

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
