You created me, perhaps by accident,
and accidents happen,
But I don't feel partial,
like accidents happen,
in fragments strewn about the room.
What shall I say to my arms, my legs,
when you discard them,
one by one?
Leave me in pieces,
I'd be your thesis,
for the change in your heart yet to come.
I am one person,
and accident maybe,
but still here just the same.
I am here just the same.

But are you an accident? I don't think so. GOOD write.

I love your work, it is from the point of view of an examined life. You ponder on things deeply and it illustrates well in your poems.
