Was Any Of This Meant To Be Intentional?


We introduced the confusion and conflicts,
With our deceit.
What else do you wish to have revealed?

'I have a question.'

Yes.
What is it?

'Was any of this meant to be intentional? '

Of course.
But none of us could foresee,
Placing the blame on someone else...
Would come to effect,
The masquerading of our credibility.
And we are here,
Once again...
To beg of you a forgiveness.

'And...
If this should happen again? '

We will be here to beg of you a forgiveness.
What is it that you don't understand,
About this process?
Our values and standards are kept very high.

'Oh.
Oh, okay! '

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Out of the bosom of the Air
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
