At Best

"Still Life" by the modern artist, Mani de Li .

At Best
After some time,
age-old and seemingly wise,
you begin to understand
that life is a series of
fractured experiences,
with the ongoing goal
of achieving excellent purchase,
unachievable by any means,
all the failed re-approximations
and festering wounds,
proof-positive that
too much time is being spent
on hopes broken beyond
all recognition of dreams.

... I'm working up to something here, stay tuned ...

Powerful stuff here, my friend. And speaking of following... I have a t-shirt with a sheep on the front of it. Above the sheep are the words "Don't follow me", below it are the words, "I haven't got a clue." I think it's quite profound... like the hopes that get broken into so many pieces that they no longer resemble the original dream. Such is life.
