Pink Slips - d'Verse 120313

By M. J. Joachim

Captured
In fear
Living
In the moment
A moment of dreaded doom
We gaze at the sky
Wondering why,
How it became so futile




Freed
From the promises
Of work in our midst
We fail to see the light
We shiver from the cold
That’s not quite there
Completely and utterly 
Unaware

Deprived
Of our senses
If only for a moment
To wallow in what
Might have been
Forgetting what is
As fear
Takes over our lives

Knocked down
Get back up again
Live the life you lead
Strangle the knot
Within your soul
That you might
Once again breathe
Being free
With who you are
One of the tiny, but brightest
Stars
