Life in a Bottle

Life in a bottle is not very fun
It's living in darkness instead of the sun
Hiding yout thoughts and all that you feel
Living the imaginary instead of the real
It's feeling trapped with nowhere to turn
And featureless faces void of concern

~HL Lester (Jan 1990)

Wow...that's deep. I love it. Sums up a lot of what I've been thinking/feeling most of my life. Thanks for posting, it Heather.

Thanks, Jana! That was one I found while looking through some of my old writing notebooks the other night. Can't find the other one I wanted to post though. Hmmm...

Awesome. Okay, so that wasn't exactly the word I prefered, but my brain is fried on edits.

It sums up a lot of what I feel/think as well. The words really hit home. I'd love to see more of these.

Got this pretty little card in the mail today as a most pleasant surprise. As soon as the mail starts again, look for something too. =)

Thanks, Rae!

I wrote a lot of poetry in high school, a little less in college, almost none now, but want to find some of the better ones to post. Too many old journals and notebooks! (Is there really such a thing??)

Glad you got the card! ,-)
