One Hit Blunder

http://www.glantz.net/blog

I want to do the right thing.
I want to be a better person.

But when it comes to doing the right thing,
I’m a One-Hit Wonder.

Asunder.
Plunder.

Hop scotch on rocks between blunder and blunder.
Love and experience
and the brevity of life.

Experience and life
and the brevity of love.

Shove.

I want to do the right thing.
I want to be a better person.

But my emotions
totally cock block
my best intentions.

Maybe I’ll spring a surprise
on myself and actually
succeed.

If not for me,
then
for the people
who count on me.
