the facile advice of councilors

will encourage you to fly without wings--

to put faith in some magic answer to an unspoken prayer

that angels will carry up into the firmament--

put no stock in it--

no magic will save you from the karma for which you must pay--

nor will the karma dissolve just because you awoke

to its truth and acknowledged your wrong--

consequence will play out--there will be no mockery--

bank on nothing but your own experience--

and don't wait for a deliverance you will receive

only after you realize it will not come until waiting is over

whether you die waiting for that unrealizable miracle--or not--
