The Top

The Top

By L. Stewart Marsden

What was good at the time,

after time,

was not.

An illusion of thought,

ill-gotten hope and dream,

that spun like a top,

and careened through and over and around until,

finally,

it wound down to tip upon its side.

Then, with pride in hand,

realizing now what then was good is not,

I turn unto another hope,

another dream,

and know that what now seems to be

might wind down just as ultimately

to tip upon its side.
