"These aren't poems. They're more like long-form fortune cookies."
Well said, my friend. And...well, sad.
Thanks, and what a coincidence... that's the title of my memoir "Well Said, and Well, Sad."
no it does not...though we do choose how much we give into it...
Precisely - well stated, my poetic friend.
That is the cycle. Like Brian says, we can break it. Very powerful poem.
shame can be tenacious like a sticky sweet and seems to have a circular nature - but i agree with bri as well - we have a choice how to deal with the old mistakes we made.. luckily...
that definitely is one vicious loop.
