My Cell

What is Joy?
What is Peace?
I know Sorrow.
I know Grief.
Pain and Suffering-
They are Hell.
They are my cell-
Where I dwell.
They hold me inside these walls
And all the while the outside calls.
Wanting me to live my life-
Never-mind my toil and strife.
And so I listen with a sigh-
As the world rushes by.

------------------
The world is in your hands; it is what you make of it.

keep on chuggin'

This really made me think of something...wouldn't it be nice if we could just turn off all our feelings & just function like robots? It would be less painful...but then, we wouldn't be the beautiful & complex creatures that we are!! I'm sure we wouldn't be writing poetry !!! Good work - really nice thoughts!

Thanks FemmeFatale, your compliment meant a lot to me. I do wish I could sometimes just turn off my emotions.
