"Live the life you've imagined." Thoreau

Destiny over-examined us
Too much was written in the stars
Though I was a great warrior,
Every fighter has battle scars

So to everyone I proclaim:
Here lies my Achilles heel,
I cut it off with disdain!
Of course, after I laid bloody and raw
but contemplation covered my pain;

Even if this scar never fades
and I limp in pursuit of destiny
Slight weakness for memory is a good trade,
You were a Trojan target
and a disaster I had made.

Once again I don my golden armor
and race fiercely into battle,
it is you I have disposed of, old memory, chattel.
