I understand this totally, Stevie. Oddly, I also have a poem called "Oblivion." It is not currently posted. I also have one entitled, "Survival." I was quite sure I'd commented on one of yours with the same theme. Check it out if you have a moment please. Many will relate to the universal meaning you have shared here. Thank you. Love and peace to you,
We all come to this cross roads from time to time my friend, but Steve you and I will write until our time on this short timespan of life comes to an end. That is our blessing and our curse. Pick the pen back up and do the job you know you must.
Don't quit my friend you are not dead
I assure you there are better days ahead.
Keep putting the pen to the paper and write
Your may help one person to see the light
and if that be true you have not failed at all
For one soul that is saved is a person who saw
the beautiful light, the colors of fall.
Don't give up.
