Connection Conquers Addiction

Poet's Notes

I was inspried to write this after listening to Johann Hari's TED talk, "Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong..."

Unlike the opaque, and shadowed depths which must be stirred;
Moving only when senses or wisdom are blurred.
As emotions dart, here, and there;
Fleeting like a shimmering flash, in the darkest of lair.

Healthy spirits wise to the current’s ebbs and sways;
Intertwining before, during, evermore, and always.
Droplets converge, streams become a river;
Tumbling and turning, but each drop a giver.

Varied in movement, but progressing none-the-less;
The mighty torrents of the waterfall do convalesce.
Supporting each other, connected at the core;
Each atom of being begging to give more.

I've heard that connection is the opposite of addiction, makes perfect sense to me. I want to check out that Ted Talk :)
