DESPERATE PERPLEXITY

by Dr. Rick McGrath,Ph.D.
(Modesto)


DESPERATE PERLEXITY

In nisus, perfect desperation sought
Found in perplexity of wooded stone
Resilient, uncolored, fixed, I stand
Unblunted by pompous rhetoric.

No less strong than the mighty oak
The acorn is embraced by a squirrel
The stained glass of my ego
Broken by the hand of christ.

The sound of shattered pride,
Is beautiful.

Written by Dr. Rick McGrath, Ph.D.
