Insanity

Like a rat
barreling towards nothing
on an exercise wheel

you are running
in the same place
you started
to run,

still expecting
to end up somewhere else
& surprised
when you fall off
exhausted,
exactly where you started

as if
how hard  you try
to get there
is more important

than actual destination.

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
