It Hurts Sometimes(But I'm Still Me)

It Hurts Sometimes(But I'm Still Me)

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)
"

I can't explain I just write...

"

 

Following a path

towards the misty mountain top

I came upon a rainbow

within arms reach.

The writing on the rock said

“Do Not Touch”.

I glanced around to find

no one to witness

to my rebel intention.

Before the tips of my fingers

could feel the colors of the world

a voice whispered

“If you don’t follow the sign

       it becomes a lie.”

To that I replied

“If I follow the words

       then I’d be a lie.”

My hand passed through,

the rainbow became rain

causing my footing to give way

sending me over the edge.

As I laid where I fell

I heard the voice again,

“As the rule has been broken

       now so are you.”

Through a snicker I retorted

“Yet I am still alive.”

Wink.

Boy I feel a very familiar vibe with what your wrote.
I always say:
"I'll never follow the yellow, brick road".
I always feel the bristles stand up a bit taller on my back when I hear the word 'rules'
My other saying is:
I rather live one life as a lion, than ten lives as sheep".

I love what you wrote here:

"If you don’t follow the sign
it becomes a lie.”
To that I replied
“If I follow the words
then I’d be a lie.”

Amen to that

Rebel with a cause indeed, fits perfectly.
“If you don’t follow the sign
it becomes a lie.”
To that I replied
“If I follow the words
then I’d be a lie.”
The ending was most perfect.
Loved this

LIfe is so filled with rules and regulations.. and those who follow without even thinking.. I felt you speaking of the life that chooses.. that realizes sometimes defiance is courage, and living is more than sticking to the road. That's what I hope i'll see when i look back at my life.

I like the thought process to follow in this. Kinda ornery, but has more to consider seriously though. Could apply to so much. Well done.

This is a perfect piece. Just the thing for a searching heart. Art is supposed to make the heart swell, or sometimes, stop. Thanks for sharing your talent!

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool
