Master Or Ghost

Are you the hero

  in your recurring dream

 

Or the victim

  of a life undone

 

Are you the ambassador

  for all you esteem

 

Or a fugitive

  —a soul on the run

 

Are you a real friend

  beyond trial and strife

 

Whose allegiance

  now stalwart defends

 

Are you the true master

  of all your desires

 

Or the ghost

  —of what sleep can’t befriend

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: February, 2016)
