  • Confided III [Au 10/22]

    Part 1, Part 2 He Wrote: Options. I have too many options. God has given me spirituality in the part of hard work, and so I am working hard, but at too many things. Sleep eludes me, work increases, strength wanes, and one such as I will grind forward relentless, grinding into the soft flesh […]

  • The Path

    Before you was set the path,  What you were supposed to do? Or was it,    What they said you were supposed to do?But you didn’t like being told what to do,So you wandered off the path.And years went byAnd you never stopped wanderingYou never found your own way. But before it was too late you looked back,You […]

  • The Tour (part I)

    2021 Dec 10, 19 IWalk in the outgrown pathSink into the soft tall grassWander, see the spire, the buildings around you The clock strikes, bell tolls,Knowledge surrounds you,Held in humans and tomes And what do you see?Here at the overgrown Academy?The scholar passes by,Impressive and regal. Of course I’m right behind you,You didn’t forget about […]

  • The Changes

    And everything is different now, Everything has changed This world, shrouded in mystery, has been pulled wide open, Shrouded in light. Calm and warm, but bright, and hazy, Illuminated, but I can’t tell—I can’t see clearly, and I think it is my eyes, not the light.   No longer do I walk through the unknown; […]

  • Four Lines from 2019

    And I fall short of my plans—alwaysAlways short, always never enoughSet your finger to the sky,Then pull it down, you’ll find me there. I found this in an old notebook. I don’t really remember writing it, but I’m sure I did. So here you go. Daniel Triumph.

  • Sessions

    The more a person knows, the more their fears have to work with. I felt like all my past achievements were…worthless.And how do you feel now?The same. But I’ve realized I feel like everyone’s achievements are worthless.So now you believe your previous work has value.No, now I believe I’m in no place to judge. Why […]

  • The Lake's Hands

    Follow me, step into a memory I was going down— I’m going down, Step into the pools, Into the lake, and I’ll drown. Someone is here, A messenger is here, As I sink down And Feet touch the ground, They’ve surround me, Messengers among us Did you come to live with me? Or would you just […]

  • Old familiar existence presses me again. Deprived, I am. Deprived the self of living, lie awake at night. Lie is a lie. Instead, stand or sit, and stimulate. Let lights shine on and blind the night. And then let obligation wash over me. Pressure me to the place between itself and night. It eats away […]

  • The Capital

    I visit the capital this time year after year. It’s the country’s iron face, reflecting the nation’s fear. Success and failure are concentrated and heightened, I’ll show you what I mean soon, don’t be frightened.   I might as well deliver the bad news first, Shrinking middle-class pockets always seem to thirst. In a city […]

  • I saw it, only half the annum past.

    And I will shred And deteriorate But only for a moment I saw it, only half the annum past. And now I walk in front, when I can When I can When I can. Fathom’s Qart.

  • Fathom’s Qart
