The cement grinds my shoes
as I resist the lonely slog
from car to sterilized elevator.
Giant waves stir deeply and compel
me to run away, get blasted, but
I’ve been trained, so I suffer, I crawl.
Alcoholism, Depression, Fear, Take Me To The Hospital

compulsion loses or did compulsion win….negative over positive and how does one define the correct way in which to live a life…. a life is a life even those at siege and in turmoil ……..good or bad that which compels must have some merit to it …is a six line poem better or worst than an 100 line odyssey?

Hudson, thank you for your thoughtful comment. Really, it makes me wonder whether either side of the coin is positive, makes me think that there must be a third side.

are you talking sides or a room with plenty of windows but lacking a door

Yes, you escape via the skylight, the fourth dimension.

HH has some strong points – but maybe it’s time for a change Carl – life is short. You hit it right on with your words – fine citizen that you are – I’ve been there but got out with life still in me…

Thank you for your comment, John. Some day, I want to figure it out the way you have. You have a very full life in you!

I’ve been trained – life does this to us and few rebels survive
