thinking these may be better in a spoken word context.
what are you afraid of?-Chuck Harris: June 2011
do i know how to do that anymore?
or do i crave the ludicracy of safety that’s not even promised
nothing is promised, but i like the illusion
the illusion that i might have control of it all
so i crave the safe, fake reality when what is real doesn’t even enter in
what is real? i can’t imagine
i can’t see
i can’t believe
real things that i actually long for will never happen, or so i think….
i catch a glimpse of life….life more lived
not a life that is crippled by control and fear
i wonder what it would be like to begin being again
to not just be doing, but to live….really live life
to have a story….to create anew…to live in the moment
to do what i need to be….
