Life Chains

Life Chains

Life strings pull and tug
Marionettes to human puppets
Endless chain from cradle to grave
A dance to imaginary song
Acceptance to deluded mores
Of society, of expectations

We ask not
Who made these rules,
Who wrote these songs
That we inflict upon our psyche

Imaginary, nonetheless true
Without substance, nonetheless real
The imaginary song
The on-going dance
New dancers take over
As old dancers leave
Continuing , ever renewing
Old treaded pathways
In the newly forged frontier

A life most ordinary – is not.
