eyes keep staring from all angles


pick a fight
or some food
the choice is all yours
do not walk that path that leads to weapons
or you will be buried deep in the quagmire

you have to transform that negative energy
into something fruitful
take a deep breathe
(you can practice that)
and run out of that pit

"I have the view for you, go find the vision"


### Wrote this after two long months of drought. Hopefully, my muse is back!!

We spend far too much time on hate when living, loving and surviving are so much more important.

Bekkie Sanchez said...

And stay out of that negative pit!

Susan said...

I like the symmetry of this, backward and forward. And I'm for the food. No quagmire and no pit.

If you dig beneath the negative you will always find the positive - well, that's my theory!
