In the Yards of My Reason

[ In the Yards of My Reason ]

'Tis all this reeking denial
   That's most self burdening
Deriving the light into setting vial
   That spares revisions forgoing

How came this to happen?
   Such trial longing for the old
And reason cheated has been
   Sanity twisted and sold

Why threads of denial do
   linger in my yards of reason?
Why threads of negation do
   linger in my seas of assent?

And why would a self do
   negate it's very reason?
As thoughts verily come & go:
   The evidence of this treason!

But why would a mind do
   confirm the self's negation?
As thoughts might come & go:
   The very source of this treason!
