      You sought me out

       Peeled me back like a sapling

       Devoured my every tiny morsel

       Encrypted my direction

       Exposed me to the elements 

       You released me into the desolate wastelands

       Condemned to walk alone

       Swollen with the shame from their mockery

       Tormented by the hunter & the hunted

       Just when I thought that was it

       You said this is your LIFE.... LIVE IT!!

    Actually this made me smile Cathy, for all the torments of life, what choice do we have but to live it, is a good reminder though and well written one. Take care, Richard

    No one can live it for you. As frustrating as it can be at times it is truly a wondorous gift. Another fine piece of writing.
