A realization I had one Wednesday a few weeks ago. "Ozymandias" and my goddess offered me answers when I asked the right questions.

Revelation on a Wednesday

Blockage of the third eye,

plagued with lack of inspiration,

I implore the will of my Goddess

to send her muses to me.

The universe, in quick reply,

gifts a poem I know well,

'Ozymandias', a tale of futile

immortality and pride.

It is then the thought does cross

my mind, I too am Ozymandias,

monarch of a land beaten to sands

by industrial era mechanical hands.

I craft my poems with mortar and brick

feigned ignorant to knowing this:

despite my ostensibly altruistic ambitions

of a legacy that stems

towards ageless relevance

birthed by poignant poetry,

my words will never last.
