The Eternal Internal Struggle

The Eternal Internal Struggle

A Poem by Jock Engelman

(original upload found here: )

Why are you lying to me 
why cant you leave me be 
why do you have to look like that 
why do u spill your wrist on the mat 
why do I even talk to you 
I know why because you asked me to  
why do I listen to u speak  
when I know perfectly well that you are weak 
why do you command me so  
while my emotions go to and fro 
many battles I have lost 
and lots of money it has cost  
mostly coz of my bad memory  
as I now sit underneath this chestnut tree  
the struggle is still taking place 
the eternal internal struggle  
between my heart, brain and me
