High Anxiety

Is there joy among us?
Are we in our prime
Or are we laboring
Feeling no inspiration
Only doing our job

Are we our own healers?
Do shaman’s pass us by?
A street corner poet
Uncounted by life
Only by politicians

We can’t take back time
The river we’re on said so
Always moving downstream
Can we start things over?
To swim back is a revolution

I’d rather get right off now
Wet as the water itself
A cold and hungry soul
I’m not waiting for a savior
At least not while I’m here

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on November 06, 2020:

Time does keep moving forward and it seems we cannot go back.

It's probably best to jump off with your feet firmly in the water...enjoy life.
