Hurrying down streets while

passing faces unknown,

he looks out at an overcast sky,

wondering if it forewarns his future.


 A completed today,

an uncertain tomorrow –

yet he shuffles forward –

more from necessity than desire.


He fights to stay positive –

to take credence in a world

filled with doubt, looking

for the promise of the future


 Trying to believe in the

omnipotent “they,” as he

struggles choosing the

lesser of two evils.

Outstanding poem! We move on through life without choice but with uncertainty, hoping for the best and making decisions with unknown outcomes.

Such fine expressions of passion and empathy trying to take one step at a time and keeping up with the flow at the same time, brilliant...

Be always safe,

Brilliant poem Dawn! Sometimes all we can do
is put one foot in front of another and go on

you give fine expression to thoughts most of us can easily relate to and identify with; the secret is to keep going and going...till the end.

Wonderful, Dawn, you got me to thinking. (Is that an lol?)
As I age, I think I think less about the future, regret less
the past, and try to embrace the present. Is that paradoxical

Autumn's Appointment lets us ponder about our higher spiritual selves and the higher realm which connects us...and we value both the feminine and masculine aspects of our being to where the universe wants to take us...a new season always gives us a fresh outlook of magic and wonder and a whole web of positive connections which obliterates evil. There's just too much good to let evil rule. Let's disperse that inspiring energy, Dawn!

Dawn, We ceratainly can relate to your words....perfectly displayed.

Dawn - You've expressed a truth of our lives, especially evident today. We can only control our responses to things beyond our control. The last lines especially express this:

Trying to believe in the

omnipotent “they,” as he

struggles choosing the

lesser of two evil- David

Reviewed by Mary Lacey, Desertrat 10/8/2008

You've summed the whole thing up in the last line...lesser of two evils. Gives great insight into this whole mess.

Reviewed by Felix Perry 10/8/2008
Well Dawn you certainly have been looking inside my head and into the heads of a lot of people when you wrote this insightful piece. Our world, the world of kids raised on KD and chunky peanut butter, Star Wars and the Beatles, respect and revolt to name just a few things...has become one that all we can do is follow the same old tired day at a time.

All the while, does he know he, ultimately, carries omnipotence within - that power that can erode darkness in its light? That evil is a result not a cause, the cause being our thinking - the pranic energy we breathe in, transform then breathe back out into the universal ethers...that there's always "choice"?

See how well you draw me into your worlds? I always find myself in some sort of visceral response to your writing - that's what makes you so wonderful!

An excellent write, Dawn, I just hope he - and the rest of us - makes the right decision. Well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Yep, it truly is the lesser of those two evils . . .

Powerful as usual. this is like putting "The mirror of Life" infront of us and letting everybody search for himself from among other images. Thanks Dawn

Dawn, this is a beauiful write, and it characterizes a major portion of the population. That third stanza is truly attention grabbing, and so true of me and others.

Choosing the lesser of two evils - I think something many of us are faced with these days.
