Have you ever felt emotions..
Which your words could not describe?
In part a desperation-
To run somewhwere and hide?
In part a flaming anger-
That happiness eludes...
Your every quest to find it...
And false hope oft deludes.
Perhaps a nagging longing-
For sweet companionship?
Which often seemed within your grasp-
And yet you let it slip....
Away. Yes, oh, so far away-
From all the life youíve known-
And oft youíve cried yourself to sleep
And wondered where itís gone.
Perhaps itís age, which causes me
To sit and meditate-
And curse the day which I was born
And blame it all on ďfateĒ.
I guess the truth which we all know-
If only we could take it...
Is that bed on which we lie...
Is exactly like we make it.

Yes, it is true, we all make our choices in life, some for the good, some not so. Again, wonderful poem, Gunslinger!

Oh Slinger -
Sometimes you just break my heart.
Bless you as you meditate ...
Merry Christmas, Slinger.
Love ~*Marge*~

Great poem on a subject we're all too familiar with....realization.  Thanks
