The Dark (poem)

By August Steiner-Zehender

[Printer-Friendly Version]

I dwell in places dark
and am comfortable there
but like it not

Silence is my goal
and my many words achieve this
with confusing ease

Failure doesn't suit me well
I fear it more than death
so I persevere

Honor and discipline my bywords
I have them both in some measure
poor substitutes for peace of mind and happiness
