Facing the Veracities


I do not yearn, I do not crave,

I live as if in my grave!

Have seen it all that’s in the tunnel-

I know I would be Killed again.

The walls no longer scare me now..!

    the walls hold no sway over me either…to live outside that is to truly live…

    You are right. This is in similar line with my poem. Short and lot of meaning there.
    I hope you are keeping well dear. XXXX

    YES…. you have to LIVE life, or life will kill you. We have to kick down the walls and walk out the door. I think of the last scene of “The Boy In the Plastic Bubble” when he decides to walk outside… thanks Olivia! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vet9SObHI08

    It is sad this feeling…just existing, unattached… 😦 Nice piece, just the sentiment evoked is sad
