Weep Not for All is Not Lost

“Hibiscus” – Marco Mazzoni, 2010

i live
i breathe
i know
with every
fiber
of my
being:

i am
blessed;
love abounds
and then
some,

i am
proud
of the
work
my two
hands
can do,
have done,
will do

i am
happy
that i
am not
at the
losing
end
of life’s
overflowing,
bursting
at the
seams
cornucopia
of delights,
of dreams.

i know
deep
within me
that – yes
that – soon
that – indeed
regardless
of the
braying of
fanatics,
groupies,

of
hypocrites,
of women
turned crone
before their
time:

i am
right.
