Declaration



I will take as long as it takes
to say what I would say.
Rather, I will take as long as I can,
for I am not given forever
or long enough.
Much will remain unsaid:
perhaps others will say it.
Probably it doesn't matter.
Probably even what gets said
isn't heard or understood.
As long as it takes to say it
I wonder why I bother.

There is nothing left of me
but a thing that says what it sees.
