Two Lost Poems

cdsmiller17

I found these poems in my Mother’s papers. (She died in 2003 – it’s taken me a while to get around to sorting them.) I think they show a guilty conscience on my part. (It would also help to know Italian, especially in the first one.)

Undeserving

My life cannot be seen as having worth,

Especially in reference to you.

I’m immature, and filled with my own view,

My words do not have depth, in shallow earth

Meant only for the wind and famine’s dearth,

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
