Sometimes freedom seems
like a liability
almost as over-rated as
security or sanity

You want to throw something
through a window
you want to scream
in someone’s face
but we don’t act
like that around here
we avoid the high-speed chase

You want to grab someone
and kiss them, dive in
to love’s sweet curse
but there may be criminal charges,
and which one would be worse?

All these choices and consequences
are enough to make my head hurt
if I had a crystal ball, would
it shorten the learning curve?
No, I’d probably break it
and stick with surprises at every turn
sometimes sour and sometimes sweet
we have to live to learn
