destiny shredded by logic,
strength, cynicism;
logic a force of habit
life often turns one out
strength in demeanor
forged of experience
cynicism, path to amusement
no longer optional
now reflex action

soul existence
found denied
beyond red brick
a wall untried
when wont to push
the barrier stands
with gentle tug
the rough stone lands
crumbled tumbled
fallen shook
game to life...
queen takes rook
