By Michael Copeland

You have the right to be forgotten
in the scheme of life’s great plan,
with a shadowy sense of
misplaced drama.

There breathes from the writer’s
mind a natural, healthy, elevated
spirit that trails to
oblivion upon passing.

Morbid aesthetics are explained
away and moral energy dissipates,
rendering moot the theories
of admiration.

I’ve dwelled apart in proud whole
heartedness, amidst the travails,
and have been compelled
to put pen to parchment.
