The Inconsistencies of Life

written by: Ann Christine Tabaka



Inconsistency rests
on weary shoulders
abducted by fame’s
glittery prize.

Not knowing a word of worth
when held out before its eyes.

A pentad of pendulums
swing just out of reach,
a sweeping arch
from right to wrong.

From virtue to ruination,
never stopping long enough
to perceive equilibrium.

Indecisive lives
grasp at lustful desires,
never satisfied
with what is at hand.

The constant of being inconstant,
fickle, faithless, and false,
a tiring act of seeking
what cannot be found.
