Loose Ends

Can't try to escape
they reach out and grab you
wanna go someplace else
and leave it all behind you

But you can't
and even if you did
they are always
one step behind you

Loose ends
are meant to be tied
sometimes the knots slip
but we can say that we tried

Life is full
of unanswered questions
A mainstay of life
is to learn it's lessons
We learn and move on
and it remains the same

Do we give up
or continue playing
life's little games?

    Adam, your poem Loose Ends is admirable -highly philosophic. I agree with you when you say "Life is full of unanswered question". As Vince has said in his comments "Some people never learn." Thanks for your encouraging words about my poem Loyalty.

    HI Adam. Good write, but some people never learn. We are still going to war as we did 2000 years B.C. Thnaks for your comments. Extreme liberalism or conservatism is wrong. I bet if both sat down and talked, a lot more could be done. Glad to see you back and posting. God Bless. Vince

    So true. The question at the end leaves the reader with something to think about. Yes, and some times those knots do slip but we have to keep on trying. This is an insightful piece. Keep up the good writing! Karen

    That's a good question you posed at the end. Life is one big running around in circles, it seems. Very good point you made.

    Hmm...interesting question at the end. Perhaps there is an in between? Not good to give up, and playing games, well, that's just not real. Thought provoking write here. Seems like something is catching up with you. Good luck. Great write! Love, Shar
