SHADY HADES
(6/3/15)


we continually
create
a multitude
of miniature hells

then
we choose
daily

sometimes
hourly

from which
underworld
we shall apportion
our personal
allotment
of suffering

we feel
the need
to torture ourselves
with some
ill conceived notion
of what
should be

we seem
to forget
that the choice
of contentment

the choice
of joy

is often
only a slight
twist of perception
toward the reality
of our current
condition

the difference
is usually
that simple

but who
really wants
to be happy
after all?

it's so
very
boring
