Days Awake

Schopenhauer nails it in "The Wisdom of Life"
in the clearest prose tells the essential truth
reminds me what I already know lack words
and fortitude to say or even think for myself

still I do in halting steadiness stumble along
untried but trying aim at value in proportion
inner daemon principal contender real life
days awake dazed nights of peace or dread
