 SEEDS OF GROWTH by Pam

CHOICES WITHIN




I crawl inside myself
as if this body was some
remedy for refuge!

Indeed, cell by cell,
molecule by molecule
it is a poisonous refuse;
a garbage pit of ills and pills
which without my sanity spills
into its dark side.

And yet, it is here
among the spoiled organisms
of this shell I choose to hide!

Even with the knowing of it
I detest the subterfuge
I bring upon myself,
a choice I make so ruefully
for surely on those days that I am sane
I could choose another vein to follow!

Yet, still today I swallow plastic dust
and crawl inside this hollow crust
where, for now
it seems the only place
I dare donate my waning trust.

 Absurd as that may seem!
This choice I make inside a doctor's dream...
