I'm going to go for a walk to clear my head of all the cobwebs that are in there being spun by too much thought.
The enemy lurks within my over-wrought brain with the planted seeds of ideas.
Knowledge that should be buried not come to fruition.
A pawn in life's cruel game, a puppet whos strings are pulled taut.
Realization of harsh facts.
Seeking desperate control.
Trying to sever the cords that bind, taking the reins of life.
Staying true to values and the one's I value.
Let go self-doubt,
I hold the power over you.
Introspection to the nth degree! Poses the classic question: how can we come the truth of anything while foundering in sea of lurid and absured media-made pseudo-news...we need some silence! Very well expostulated here... a wonderful poem ... bravo ... bravo ... Michael
those two lines are amazing, so much is said there. the reader (well, me anyway!) actually feels better just having read it. a wonderful sense on self awareness in this piece. i like how you think...it makes the reader think, too. which is great. i enjoyed this, i think on a personal level for me, because i'm trying to 'let go of self doubt' as we speak, as i tried to put into my poem 'Journey'. i am trying to be more confident and sure of myself...failing miserably, too! lol
anyway, enough of me babbling at ya,
great piece. you have delved into your mind deep for this, it shows wonderful talent...keep 'em coming!!
This is a really strong write that I really like
In this write
I believe you are speaking of someone perhaps yourself that has become fed up living the life others have choosen for you to live
I agree that a person is never free until they choose to live the life that was destined for them not the life others have created for them
I miss talking to you in chat
Please keep in touch
Please if you get a chance Please take a look at some of my writes and let me know what you think
