Angst, the Silent War

11" x 14" acrylic on canvas panel

The Internal War

Lost were the shadowed youths,
laughing together in the Night;
Now we are The Serious People
too used to each other 
to bother with exploring

Sloppy, messy and unabashedly there,
these ides of portent 
whispered that decisions
made in haste
are the cliches 
We so often regret
years later when We 
are too weary to Change.
