PUSH, STRUGGLE
(2/2/15)


we look
for easy
ways out

methods
of making
our lives
less
stressful

more
enjoyable

yet
we contract
more compulsions

neuroses

syndromes

conditions
with little
or no
physical
diagnoses

we have
comforted
our way
into psychic
extinction

like
a working dog
we need
full time
jobs

if not
survival
then
something
tangible
to call
our own

a commitment

we need
unending
purpose
in our lives

not fun
and relaxation

we need
challenge
to grow
individually
and
as a race

stop
barking

get
to work

today
is another
day
