I Shall Not Fold

Poem By Keegan Coutriers

O’ Fulfillment do come to be true,
For a hope that weeps expectations of sought,
Tolerances unduly testing the very nature of fateful subdue,
Where grievances of recollection stain my very thought,
Come to be in my favor kindred of my very soul,
That I may give what’s kind to thee of merriments and gaiety,
Too, consent bestow for you, to my goal I mould,
And my awe-struck visage filled with disbelief and sobriety,
If only the fruits of my toil would be realized
O’ How the strength of my will would be greater still,
So as remembrances of yore grudgingly subside,
Quietly lain I but not given to the absence of will,
Of I, shall I this wretched conquest bereave,
Through my appeasing of age and this demise, I thee release.

Who consented to loves cruel allure?
Although the ruins lay bare, a minute has been too soon,
For seconds are fixed and thoughts endless seem,

Where wallowing and wontedness bellow remorseful tear,

An Account Of Failure

O’Dreary affliction of life, to sorrow we thus entreat
For kindness to be bestow’d upon this weaken’d vessel,
Honor, pride and contentment seeketh I of esteem’d worth,
So labors the common soul for a merit that bequeaths his value,

The Route

In the days of my adolescence,
Often had I thought about the years that follow,
For those days were filled with hopes and dreams,
And as I stand here, hardly passed the bloom of youth,

A Confounding Love

Mine eyes hath never bore such comeliness,
But thy beauty reflects loves most wicked sin,
That in thine own splendor,
A folly plagues a fickle view,
