About Me

My photo
It's important to be silly, to be serious, to be strong, to be frail...for what is life if we only shared a mask?

If Not Now

picture courtesy www.fotosearch.com

Do you hanker
While it spreads
Like a canker
Within your soul

Sending ripples
Of unease
That ricochet
Never to cease

The starving embryo

In need
In want
A time to gestate
A time to be reborn

The hungry ghost
Cannot be appeased
With stories
Of conformity

If not now, when
If not you, then who
It's not later
It's not them
