apathy’s karmic dues

presently finding myself
swimming in Samsara
rolling a dice
walking a path

ages has it seemed
since free I lived
without walls or meaning
floating with the tide

a lifetime has it been
since return made I
to earth, them, the world
this life and its game

finding myself now a player
a lord, labourer and lover
many men have I been
many hearts have I loved

often am I wounded
the hard stab of heartbreak
thusly my karmic debt is paid
with bitter tears and silent cries
