If I could see
from you to me,
no telling who
Id try to be

Id like to think
Id be the same,
but in a blink
Id play that game

Id scale that sky,
Id wish that wish
O goal on high,
O golden fish

That slippry slope
pure snow that blinds
with radiant hope
our mortal minds

So how to fish
without that pole?
O dirt of wish,
blot not my soul

And so my goal,
succinctly put,
is to be whole
without that soot

Yet in this life,
so soon we blunt
our sharpened knife
in hapless stunt

to be the man
and nothing more
Plan or no plan,
who's keeping score?

If I could see
from you to me,
could I be free?
Why try to be?

Love to know my future but best I do not. Loneliness is part of it, I know and can handle it with God's blessings. Happy Easter too,

And so my goal,
succinctly put,
is to be whole
without that soot

Indeed I find myself craving the same..but removing the soot sure has proven difficult.
Love the way you think..profound
Thankyou Bill..glad I found you.

Sometimes, we do have to walk in other's shoes to understand others. Nicely-done!
