The Cerebral Fugitive

Where does one go...

with thoughts that aren't safe...

speaking of things that strafe as they save...

breaking out of one illusion...

finding yourself in another...

constantly moving with no where to call home...

no sooner does one breath in relief...

then finds the limits...

bars and pad locks...

often gilded...

even pretty...

still bars nonetheless...

me thinks it tiring...

carrying around a sledge...

hefting it along to strike..

cocked to break the next gate...

for one's self or others...

one wonders where the labyrinth ends...

still on I trudge...

sledge in hand...

sometimes too weak to press on...

thankful not alone in my struggle...

my fellows having sledges of their own...

still it would be nice...

finding an island of thought...

where the urge to trudge on wouldn't molest...

a place of peace...

there of my own choosing...

and a way off whenever I pleased.

I love your lines, "One wonders where the labyrinth ends", and "finding an Island of thought"...I hope you succeed on both those venues. Thanks for sharing.

I have to agree: "one wonders where the labyrinth ends..." Very powerful. Nicely done!

Great write as usual. I agree with the repeated phrase and your other thoughts here. I'm lost too. Thank God there's food and water in this labyrinth!

when you would have me come, but call

to hear my eager step

for I will forge a way

through mazes, with my trusty maul

I promise to be at your beck

and call, through anything

that you may need plowed through

the word we share

will lead us through it all,

for I know He will be there too

oh my friends

I thank you

one and all

for friends you are you see

to look at this odd

lab rat and see beauty of any kind

a fell in the night

of zeros and ones

just trying to make sense

of the race before the end

trying to convince the rest

there is cheese

I spoke first to the air

now to you

god bless you one and all.

My favorite response from you by far JFrost. Now just keep doing you, the scent of GOuDa is in the air.
