Soaking Ambition

In the mind there is a border-

The brave may cross, the cowards may lean, but

This is not an excuse to stay idle.

The word of the day is manacle

It is something to avoid, or, if you can’t,

To break.

It is harsh here.

The rubble stairs are inviting,

The oil-slick coasts are full of moors

And every candle burns at both ends.

We are all of us Sisyphus.

-B.W. Gladney
