Connections

Is it evil or unkind
to feel trapped in the past
when the present’s hard to find?

Is it thoughtful, as is said,
to connect me to the living,
when I prefer the dead?

If they questioned their morality
as ours relate to theirs
would the choices be so different,
or am I simply splitting hairs?

  1. Is it evil or unkind
    when old age loses
    its ‘presence’ of mind?

    And if the future
    unveils only more
    of the past…how
    long then can one’s
    presence last?

  2. This is a great poem and thought. You write amazing poetry.

Go on, give me some feedback..
