WALK AWAY

WALK AWAY

A Poem by Jeff Bresee
"

A little something for change in the new year.

"

I wonder

I wonder

I wonder why it goes

I deny it

Try to fight it

Against the way it flows

I ignore it

I deplore it

Try to push it far away

But I fear it

I'm too near it

And it haunts me every day

For circling in the skies are things

I wish I could disguise

That melt to crystal teardrop

And it makes me realize

That I’m part of it

Not above it

And I’m not the way I was

Oh, I hate it

Execrate it

And everything it does

So I’ll change it

Rearrange it

Try to start another day

Then I’ll stop it

Yeah, I'll stop it

And I’ll turn and walk away

Love the rhythm of the lines .. can hear it so clearly. Not sure if this poem is intended as lyrics but could so easily be ..

'And it makes me realize That I’m part of it Not above it And I’m not the way I was Oh, I hate it Execrate it And everything it does ' .. don't we all feel like that sometimes about something .. trouble is we can't put it as finely as you have!

A amazing flow of words. Sometime better to walk away. Life is change and hope things can fall right.

i really liked the rhythm and rhyme pattern in this. it made it fun to read. and the sentiment is something i think everyone can identify with. nicely done.

Ah, the age old quest of making better of what we have or what we are. Well done.

Endings birth new beginnings... this was very intense and mysterious.. univerisal in philosophy.. so many have things swirling around them.. feelings of despair for example or issues that keep circling them.. there is so much this could mean but the depth and flow is what has me hyptnotized and magnetized at the same time.. great creative work!

Sometimes a write touches on something inside – almost like pinging an echo of familiarity – illusive yet substantial ………. Like this – “For circling in the skies are things/I wish I could disguise/That melt to teardrop rainfall” – disturbing, immensely descriptive of fears deeply hidden and protected which beg the light or [not-so-]simple acknowledgement. Wonderful courage here – veiled yet screaming. You are a fine writer.
