Conversion

Because this is the end,
I’ll begin again.
No, this is not about pain –
No such crap!
I’m done with all that,
I am!
You wince:
You’ve heard all this before...
But, have you? Truly?
This tone, this pause, this tremor in my voice,
This resolve?
Doesn’t solve
Anything,
Eh?

How would you know,
Sitting up there?
I talk too much?
Don’t you?
Do this, and that, and not the other!
Well, I did that all,
And nothing’s worked.
So, this is the end,
And I’m starting again
With another god.
