learned helplessness

I fail to see
and perhaps therefore
back and forward
we shall go
and round also
'til one of us
or both
lose our faith
in what we know

it's here
every bloody where
if only
we had eyes to see
and ears to hear

but we don't

you have yours
and I have mine
and both of them
we hold divine
in sacred mirror
of ourselves
as we should see us
