Thirty Pieces of Silver

For this
paltry sum
Iíd throw
away
my
morality.

Is this, truly, who I am?

I ponder
the query
hoping not
butÖ

The sun
shines
brightly
as if oblivious
to my
deliberately
delicate
mental debate.

Turning a corner,
the dawning
of a new vision
sheds clarity
on an old
desire.

Yet,
the heart
pounds
stronger
for what
itís been
denied.

Plucking
daisy petals
ďI will doĒ
ďNo, I wonít doĒ
brings levity ~
for a brief moment.

Sadly,
wishful
thinking
wonít
cleanse
my soul.

Reality
dictates
for
thirty pieces
of
silver
