Ideals/Failure/Sacrifice/Life: 4 Haikus (National Poetry Writing Month 2019 #17)   Leave a comment

If I hold ideals,
Am I not obligated
To live them myself?

In failure, I grow
Into someone with the chance
To fail yet again

Life: a sacrifice
To the gods, or to our fate
Willing or afraid

My life is fleeting
The amount is just a crumb
But the taste is sweet

– Shaman Romney 2019
