    How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
    I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
    My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
    For the ends of being and ideal grace.
    I love thee to the level of every day's
    Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
    I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
    I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
    I love thee with the passion put to use
    In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
    I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
    With my lost saints. I love with the breath,
    Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
    I shall but love thee better after death.
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning

    Isolation-Nation

    I
    One rocky isle in the open sea,
    A safe haven for people who flee,
    The desperate, hungry, refugees.
    Part of a whole greater than itself.
    Before the dark times came.
    When there’s a loss in prosperity,
    There can be a crisis of identity.
    Demagogues on the prowl,
    Whipping up,
    Finding someone to blame.
    ‘Let’s get back control today,
    Let’s go it alone,
    Let’s do it our way’.
    So to the ballot box they descended,
    Consensus they ended,
    And yes, they went their own way,
    Banners flying for Independence Day.
    Isola nation,
    Newly born,
    Viewed outsiders with scorn.
    II
    Old agreements null and void,
    So new arrangements need to be made,
    Going far and wide to sell our wares,
    For any price,
    To anyone there.
    Meanwhile back on the Isle,
    Poisonous ideas were on the rise,
    Who fits in and who doesn’t not,
    ‘Be gone,
    be gone,
    be gone with them,
    Let’s make Isola great again.’
    III
    Brain drain followed,
    For them not the cold of this barren rock,
    One by one they left, they left,
    Leaving very little, little left.
    They went their own way, they did of course,
    But no nation is truly an island.
    Much diminished this cruel island became,
    For shame,
    Isola Nation,
    The clue was in the name.

    The Truth About Life?

    Life, your life and mine.

    A series of escapades, some good and some bad. At times you betray yourself and other times you are victorious. You embarrass yourself and you redeem yourself. You love and you hate.

    Your life, like mine is a wave with highs and lows. Your first love, the one that didn't love you back. Then the one that did. Your first sex, with the one who could have been your soulmate, but it didn't work out. Then one did.

    You work at a job you find boring or exciting, but not fulfilling. You have a boss that doesn't know sheep shit from wild honey, yet he/she is your boss, with power over you and you accede to conformity.

    You eventually find a job that fulfills you, but not completely. You find something to believe in, but it's not complete either. You settle.

    Years go by and there is a longing in you for a thing you can't put your finger on, searching. Maybe it's another person, you fuck around and have guilt follow you like an assassin. Then, you find that your sig other has fucked around too. Your world falls apart. You leave without direction, without purpose, you are devastated, seeing only one side.

    Eventually you come to understand that only truth matters, yours, hers, it doesn't matter, as long as it is true. Your broken heart never heals, but the suffering does subside. You long for the one who can make you forget all the others, but he/she never appears.

    Finally, you settle into a routine that at least seems normal. You work and make love and dream of things that might have been. You can never find the perfect reality, because it cannot exist for you. The betrayal and the being betrayed has taken the life from you. You live but aren't really alive, you screwed that up long ago.

    You find an escape in drugs or alcohol and hide from reality, knowing you can't hide.

    Then comes an understanding that surpasses all others. You finally know that your life, good or bad, is your life and you can get on with it or end it. You still search, you can't help it, but this is your life. There is nothing better for you, this is it.

    All the great times you had mean nothing now, except in your mind, and they remind you that your life has been less than anticipated. The good times don't last, as don't the bad times, be grateful.

    Look around you, count your blessings and enjoy the life you have, it won't get any better.

    Life is an endurance and a sword with two edges. When it ends, you will feel both gratitude and regret. That's life.
