Catch 22

There are always


on my life’s way

It’s an excuse

to blame the system for problems

we sustain like; hierarchy,

patriarchy, misogyny.

Failure is inattentiveness;

not the unassailable wheels

promoted by random sanctions.

Assumptions are

just an unwritten influence

to avoid responsibility

and accountability,

Lesson learned:

between a rock and a hard place –

is not blocked by interference,

rather expects intervention.


is an absurd position –

do or do not, there is no try.

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
