    See what happens when I go away--especially when I really don't want to be gone--I miss poems like this that bleed emotion from every wound and every hope and dream. But....if you can bleed these emotions not only are you a fine poet but a healthy mind and an inspiration as well. Thank you for sharing what we all have to understand but few of us are able to reiterate---we are not alone in our doubts about life--this special poem tells us we are one.

    A little of both is a necessity in this game of life. Philosophical content painted well, Becca!

    a hard question in life, should we be content with who we are and what we have or do we step out of our comfort zone. I enjoyed this poem =)

    Relevant questions for some of us. But I agree leave well enough alone.

    You speak for many of us, at least you do for me, I too question this many a time dear friend, maybe that is what makes this poem so endearing to me, we are only human love, we do our best, is all he asks of us, in the end, our heart will choose for us, xxx

    Doctors..nutritionists.always say what we love to eat most is always best not to eat ,usually the least healthy..Mothers..teachers always give the same advice..We must study not play but who loves to study more than play.Our conscience says the same..The most fun tempting things n life taste better than the sour daily boring routine but in the end the tempting adventure will always become another routine..So its tough choices some of which not worth the risk.A thought profound

    I believe what you're saying is very true.

    Ok Becca. Allow me to answer each stanza individually. Yes. Yes. Yes. YES!!! Maybe. That being said, I think we all question these things. Maybe not so poetically but certainly as deeply. Most just don't know how to ask. This was a thought provoking and entertaining poem. The kind that I most enjoy. Good job and thanks for sharing the thought. Rockman :-)

    L. Avatar Rebecca L. Date: 10/19/2013 8:39:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    lol :) Thanks Rockman. I didn't think I could say "yes" to both desires. I'll have to figure that out. ;) Thank you I'm glad you enjoyed it! It's really great to hear from you again ... I hope you're sticking around a while...

    Your poem reminds me of a Bible verse: "In this world ye shall have tribulation."

    L. Avatar Rebecca L. Date: 10/18/2013 11:02:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Tribulation? wow I didn't think of it like that.
  1. Date: 10/18/2013 8:25:00 PM

    Apart from being a brilliant piece of writing, and this is brilliant, you have expressed that inner turmoil most of us go through at some point in our lives with searing emotion. There are no easy answers Becca, just hard decisions. Take care, Richard

    And for saying my poem is brilliant! I liked that part too... a lot :) lol
    L. Avatar Rebecca L. Date: 10/18/2013 10:17:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    But I want easy answers, Richard. Hard decisions are too... hard. But yes, thank you for your advice. Thank you for always being so wise, as well as kind.

    Wow, you have worded this poem so expertly my friend! What path to take seems to usually have a grey cast to it, you never know exactly the best way to go about something, things in life can be so mysterious! This is an awesome poem, Great Work!!
