Man must struggle against his destiny, but for those who believe, they can find consolation for "my yoke is easy and my burden light". Victor PS Sorry I read this so late. But I was not informed by AD about your poem.
I hope that this is a work of imagination JL, because if it isn't, and you are writing about your own struggles, all I can say is that my heart goes out to you. I've been there and experienced what you speak of here, and the memory of those struggles leaves me debilitated. Blessings ...
J.L. written in simplicity but provoking and profound. Life is hard to handle but I would image it's even harder if the one we share it with is not connected to us and it's strangling us from no feelings or love and you want out because you want to escape. Sad but I do think it's an exceptional write.
