Tablet Experiment - Blink by HSAdude Tablet Experiment - Blink :iconhsadude:HSAdude 0 1
The Dissertation
The Dissertation
By [HSAdude, my real name would ordinarily go here]
"Sometimes opportunity knocks.  Sometimes, you answer to find an unpleasant surprise on your doorstep."
You asked me to put our lives into words,
To shove a watermelon into a coffee mug.
Not to say I didn't try, of course:
I spoke of childhood, I spoke of love,
I spoke of friendship, trust, and thought.
And yet something was missing.
You wanted to know why we do what we do,
What sends us on our paths.
I thought it might be hope,
Or perhaps ambition, maybe survival,
Or a combination of all in one unnamed feeling.
And yet something was missing.
You asked me for the dissertation
So you could see if it was right or wrong.
But I thought you were wrong,
Wrong for thinking I could be right,
And your path is not defined by me,
Or mine by yours.
"That's what's missing," I say as you scoff.
You just keep looking for what's not there.

Other People
What do they matter?
Those People whose opinions
You make into your own.
Those People who carry
Your life upon their backs.
Those People who admire
The bird that swims,
And the fish that flies,
But nothing that does otherwise.
Ever hear that expression?
You know, the one where
The guy's not supposed to bring
His work home with him?
Why don't you think of him?
He's still one of those people,
But you shut him out.
That's just not the way you run
Your Life.
Funny words, Your Life.
They're yours to do with
What you want to do with them.
But Your Life is just a small part
Of that huge entity called Everyone's Life.
When you yank Your Life,
All of Those People's Lives
Are chained to it, and they come with it.
Inevitably, for your sake or theirs,
Somebody's going to let go,
And release their end of the chain.
But you can't accept that, can you?
To you, that chain's still attached,
And it's stronger than ever before.
But that somebody doesn't realize it,
And wanders, confined by a radius
