Anyway, the prompt is to pick up any one line (mention which one have you picked) or gist of the whole piece, if you can make sense of it, and base your piece on it.
Would I care to be right? If life was not finite If I’d the luxury of eternity to let it be naturally proved that I’ve always been right… beliefs and perspectives windowless walls between us block insights – so much so, that you revel in pleasures of darkness bottling and imprisoning light the beheaded boatsman sinks with the boat messenger from afar carrying a crumpled note All is not well, all is not right.. But I’d always been right He should not have ventured this far… He risked his life for a cause inane A carrier of ignorance, misguided By those who think they’re right
I have taken my inspiration from the overall message of the poem, I am always right!
What a curse my soul has to bear
The burden of knowing more than anyone else
The onus of being the only one with knowledge
One wise head counseling all the others
If they don’t prosper, following my advice
The fault is theirs, never mine
It’s their stupidity that lands them in trouble
Not my sagacious wisdom or suggestions
It is indeed a revelation to me after a lifetime
Of believing that I knew best, that I knew it all
That I was as fallible as any other human
Alas! I was wrong all along to think
That I am always right
