Dilemmas and confusions
Unsettled and unsolved Instead of hault Become the driving force Give shape to the unexplored Let excitement to continue Let life to happen in not just one way!
One morning I felt a thought
moving ahead of where I could see collecting energy from my heart it became so particular about me that it fought its way over the sticks and stones which fell into broken pieces wherever it went I wondered what it held with single mindedness so purposefully to make it struggle to the front I followed where it led it would not wait for me it knew more than my mind could it knew about where I wanted to go but when I called it gave no answer I couldn't stop it I couldn't hold it back while I dithered on and on it went on a path I could only wonder as though it had destiny all worked out a sweet song called from deep in the forest so joyful a bird it broke my heart in two and part of me ran to find its nest but it needed no path as I should have known and after a rest off it flew I retraced my steps back to the forked place at that moment the thought was gone though I found a piece of black lace caught on a thorn it dissolved in my hand when I held it up to the light leaving powdery graphite on my finger tips which had the forgotten taste of sea spray at night when the tip of my tongue touched it I heard the whisper of kisses from long ago and then I looked down in silence alone and lost - too late I knew abandoned to my thoughtlessness

No one knew.
Why: the reasons we did what we did. Massacres and chemical warfare, the draft Because no one would volunteer. Why did we go to war? The government spinning lies of what happened, Yet the footage on the news says the opposite. We were losing everything. Killed For no reason, and so were they.
