Anonymous . . . The Eulogy Of.



Dedicated to all those voices who spoke out over the centuries, in so many ways, about so many things, but whose names on the whole remain anonymous to us even now (mainly because so many of them were women), yet whose words we often quote time and again, using their most famous signature Anonymous, Anon, Unknown.

Anonymous . . . The Eulogy Of.

All I had to say of time my dear, that was No friend of mine,

From first breath of air, till final gasp, my life felt at odds with one divine.

And from cowering in corners, to dancing on life’s stage,

From sharing the thoughts my heart did think, it seems my life caused much outrage.

From mother’s arms, to father’s knee I sensed no loss of Love,

From the first song I sang, to last climbed tree, life was always knife in velvet glove.

And although I pondered tried my best, to embrace the thoughts from east to West,

It was deemed and thus agreed upon, that I’d failed every single test.

And so awash, set free, named useless, I picked up my pen and did duly write,

My thoughts, my contemplations, my discernments, wrong or right.

For although it seemed there was No place in this great life for me,

The pen in hand dared to imply, to write was my destiny.

And so after much discussion the pen and I declared…

Here are the words we could not say while life left speech impaired.

And you may choose to look not see, to listen but not hear,

You may dismiss my cause, concerns, the things I deeply fear.

But you can never say again, there goes that waste of life,

For this fool she leaves gifts of words to you. . . Because that is her life’s purpose, her Sacrifice.
