Wounded, Alive


Wounded animal..
Licking her wounds
The herd moves on
Does anyone care?
Does anyone notice?
Emotional hurt
Try to move
The only ones that will cry
Are the ones watching on imax screens
A world away
What is death?
So cheap
What is life?
Worth fighting for?
How many do you bring down
To live?

Or do you..?
Do you stay
Another day
And another
And find a new kind of life
Perhaps greater
On the greatest of screens
a world away
perhaps..

wounded, alive

The concept of survival of the fittest is very cruel when it's played out in real life.

we can't allow our wounds to keep us from moving on with our lives...so we nurse ourselves until we feel stronger and move on to live another day and fight another fight...

I felt this post. I wonder if I've been left behind or whom I've left behind.

chav....
Thanks...I eat on paper..lol
But I see what u mean..the warm soapy water washing over ur hands can be a good stimulant..
I should do it more often..

itsallgoodnow...
yes indeed..but here the struggle is not with others..but within ourselves...do u grab and reach for what at that moment seems like "life" to you...or stay behind with the faith that something greater awaits...for ur wounds..

open...
gotta keep fighting..absolutely

moiy...
what?..you'd rather have squirrels ripping up ur petunias?

sara...
youve definitely left a chunk of u behind..but the wound will close...

smb...

Dear Shadchan,
I knew there had to be a man out there who would like to do more dishes because it may be a stimulant for deep insights! FOUND.
