Thank you for your Legacy
Thank you for your legacy.
Your legacy that allowed you to make all the choices that you want and not suffer the consequences. The road frequently traveled, the easy path that cushioned your feet. No blisters, no heavy breathing. Never knowing what it is like going without.
No morals, no self control, no conflict resolution. And you continue on your own path. Remaining comfortable, fat and full yet so unfulfilled.
There you sit on your Lazyboy. Which came first, the laziness or the chair? Your soul missing like the remote control you can't seem to find.
Grass is greener on the other side. Why not trek over to it? Leave behind what ever you don't want, what ever you can't care for any longer. Pass along your debt, your inequities, your legacy to me. Let me, your child care for you when you age. Let me, your child, your first born be left with nothing as you start over with your new life and your new wife. Allow me, at two years of age care for your first wife. The wife you first chose, then chose to leave. Your wife, already born with mental illness now and forever broken from divorce. Heart severed forever until it stops living. Let that what is united by God not be destroyed by man. Unless the man her heart once had become one with leaves. Unless that man once made child with leaves. Unless that man, once a man was never really a man just a victim and coward.
And you are a byproduct of your society. Cultivated by the greed and the darkness of your time. Your time of free love and Howdy Doody time. All trickery, a mere facade of brokenness and destruction. Broken intimacy broken dreams. Destroyed by the lack of care of others. Mixed cocktails swirl around like a chirping bird to quiet the soul but do not drown out the cries for help.
Who are you now? What are you feeding on? What is your legacy?
