“ Commitment ” ~ on ones own terms ~

 

Why persist

With nebulous issues

To which commit,

Or self-impose

Injudicious

Constricts,

Likely to entangle

Worthy attempts…

 

For there’s no panacea

Or magical solutions

That answers all,

Nor twists of fate

Expunging errors

Of naive beginnings…

 

Yet with tenacity,

The ultimate assault

For self determination,

We’ll disencumber

The foibles from they,

Who mentally cage us…

 

Thus commitment

Should be primarily

To live life

On ones own terms,

Without compromise

That may so jeopardize,

Our ability to survive!

    • You are right on… Absolutely the most difficult, bearing in mind man’s susceptibility to the influences of his own weaknesses and self-styled needs. The old devil and the apple myth says it all. Thank you for your reflections. J J F
