Thank you Bob Dylan. Always a pleasure.

I’m bending the impossible, something must be done.

Twisting my life’s riddles, I’ve only just begun.

Poking true absurdities at all of natures will.

Repainting life’s destiny to enhance the simple thrill.


Fixing contradictions, applying different rules.

Building new acquaintances, adopting polished tools.

Spinning a new balance, trade in my perspectives.

Restructure tired bonds with option bought directives.


Promise old exceptions, backrooms filled with dreams.

Deceptive consternation replacing silent screams.

Pack my inhibitions, escalate my climb,

analyze my freedom, and pace myself with time.


Augmenting my  integrity and pointing a new way.

Unwrap my old beginnings, restructure how I play.

Undoing set traditions, disengaging knots of rope.

Refreshing dry ambitions is the ladder for my hope.

ah, that eternal art of regeneration...
dust off those dreams and water those ambitions;

great write, michael.

Sounds like you've embarked on a very big adventure. It isn't easy turning one's life on its ear and being open to what might happen if we just altered one thing in our lives... if not many. ~ Sara

Bending the impossible is something I've done all my life. And y'know, it's not so impossible. I appreciate what you;re saying here.
