Can I Live With The Real Question?

Can I live
Without
digging down and out
Uncovering
the parts of me
That hide within the noise
Of a life kept busy

Can I live
Unless
I listen through the silence
Uncovering
the uncomfortable
noises and cries
Of a life often ignored

Can I live
Despite
both hiding and embracing, while
Uncovering
the me that wants release
to be free once again
Of a life in chains

  1. It’s funny, because after my kids grew up to the point that they didn’t constantly need me, I thought I would have more time and be able to slow down and discover who I was. And yes, I did do that, but what I found out is that I do love to be busy and completely use every minute of life. So I am busy now with other projects and lots of writing. 🙂
