You pose the big questions
Receive few answers.
Those who commit
Make it stick
While those who need (daresay deserve) it most
Slip into the trough
Brilliant yet flawed.
No need to strip everything back
Facing fears is a T-shirt slogan
Salvation does not always wait
Under agony stripped layers
Merely exposes more flesh
And pulsing vulnerability.
Leave me now
A squirming, spiralling cocoon
As long as there is opportunity
Comments, thoughts, always welcomed. (Unless by trolls. You guys need counselling)
No one would survive without their masks. To me, life is about the strugle to find answers to the big questions. Facing fears has a lot to do with giving in to peer group pressure. I would prefer the peerers to fuck off so I can live my life my way, partly examined and very flawed.ReplyDelete
Well said. I concur. To think of the things teenagers do to satisfy the 'peer'.ReplyDelete
There's so much here to chew on. Very well done, Anthony.ReplyDelete
I try not to pose big questions. There aren't answers.
PS LOL, damn trolls do need counselling. I'm so fed-up with them.
