Old speak

Don’t ask me becauseĀ I might try to answer and fail.
I blame myself for not knowing enough and not trying harder to contribute when I had the chance, not entering the fray. Instead, I stood on the sidelines thinking, mirror-effect deluded, that I am right in there playing the field, scoring, winning even.
I can see now my shadow in the shape of defeat, even though my stupid feet will not be dissuaded and persist in believing they can go to the mountain, and sometimes do.
