When the gear is put away and the heat of battle abated
will there be time for introspection
or is choosing distraction and activity the better choices?
Soul-searching is superficial if it brought to mind at all.
Immersed in noise of this life
there’s no space to weigh and consider
what to love and how and what to leave and why
so hunker down especially when the anger wells up.
There was a time for dreaming, uninterrupted,
embracing the possibilities was unavoidable
but there were choices to make, paths to cross
one emerges, others recede and revelation revealed.
Left with a handful of fool’s gold is what’s at stake, something to protect?
Missed flights, dinners forsaken, owned, instead, by a smart device
without acknowledging the unfinished business its seamless
building a legacy of lies, a character of deception, a death within a life.
