Without


I now live life
Without
So many things:
Without
Unhappiness
Without
Great heaviness
Without
Hate's cold embrace
Without
Indifference
Without
Prejudice, and
Without
Those small regrets.

 (Written from Lisa Cihlar's prompt "small regrets or small egrets - your choice.")

I really like this. It's like a coming of age insight. I too live without.

A delightfully simple poem whose very simplicity amplifies the release from complexity. Nicely done.

Cathy ~
Thank you so much. What a wonderfully capsulized summation of my poem.

Hi Sam ~
I trusted that some wisdom of life would be seen and perhaps understood by sharing what I have come to know. Thank you so much for noticing :~)
