Transparency

Haven't contributed for awhile. Here's a quick one:


Transparency

I haven't stumbled;
I haven't fallen.
I haven't succumbed
to the shadows in the night.
I haven't lost my way in your anger,
and I haven't shattered my hopes on the rocks of your disbelief.

But I also haven't cried out to the stillness
to wake up the me in me.
I haven't shaken the dust off my shoulders
and challenged the world to turn me away.
I haven't risked my heart or my humanity,
and I haven't pushed my way through to your soul.

I smile through my life without living it,
touching nothing and no one.
I've lost the warmth of the sun
and the scent of the breeze.
I move from town to town,
and go nowhere.

The bars are transparent,
but the cage still exists.

I forgot I even wrote that.

Funny how moods come and go (talking of Michaelangelo) and never stay for too long. I guess I'm glad...I wouldn't want to feel that way forever. But it's good to get a kick in the pants once in awhile...to set you down the right path.

Or even the wrong one, as long as you're going somewhere...

You hit a real truth there scappy. I think we all feel that way sometimes. I know I do. Still, writing it is the best way to get it out I think

This line rings familiar to me Scappy. Thanks for writing it.

bicyclingfish...I'm glad it meant something for you...

popkidU2...apparently the act of writing that one knocked me out of the mood. Thankfully. But it's still so true...
