I'm restless tonight
Want to spread out in flight
Run away from it all
 
                             ~ for a while ~

A long while…
I just need some time
Time to be just me
Free
Even
               Of me, myself, and I

Yes, me again


I just wanna be alone for a bit
Carefree for a time
Unweighted by this world’s concerns
Just for a time

                                 ~  to rejuvenate ~

But…


There are choices
Each of us make
And mine have always
Been what they have been
Sometimes wise
Sometimes unwise
More unwise than not
But life is to be lived and learning occurs in the journey


As oft times happens for me,
These meanderings of mine
Begin one way
End another


Though money would change many things,
Smooth much of what is harsh
It does not supply all things
This I know with a surety
More razor-edged than honed steel
Than blades hand-forged and oil-quenched


One can survive without money
Though tis a dire and desperate thing indeed, I know
And, though some say tis possible to survive without love of any kind
No love for another in any form, permutation, or kind
From my vantage, while one can do without many things,
Love is the most valuable and necessary
The strongest, though certainly there are those who call that into question as well


In my experience, and surely tis not everyone's experience, this I DO know
In my experience, love is the key when all else wears one down
When all else is burned away, when all else fails, love answers
Tis invariably about love
The love I carry within me and share…
