Faith Will Fate

Do you believe in progress
Are you a plot pointer
Do your questions end in marks

Grade your papers
Hold the sparks
For a fire is a process
Not an event

And while it is both
Divergent intent
Anthro
po
mor
phize
All that we see
Are those your
real
eyes
Nar
rative
plea

To a life of the future
And belief in the will
A story that ends
On top of that hill


Read on and you'll be
a rolling down boulder
more mountains than thee
are rock over shoulder.

Yet page limits say:
Your life is ending
After the start
A stop is but pending

Reject it you can
But only with heart
Your mind is a ban
On all of your art.
