Poem - To

The poem “To” could be very hopeful or very dark, depending on how the words are interpreted.


To lessen
the angst of everyday,
to distract
myself from the pain,
to make it
through the hours' turn,
these goals are set in my response.

To medicate
with the surface dark,
to dive deep
beneath unconscious,
to be awake
while numb to all,
in these things find life's withdrawal.

To unwind
into darkness bliss,
to shed
this skin for a last time,
to find
the exit hid from sight,
all of these are my life's delight.

To be or not to be,
dual letters of consequence
to act on wishes
stated here,
to leave the words
said not done,
this is my choice yet to make.
