Message from Writer

"I went into the woods because I wanted to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."
-Henry David Thoreau

"That you are here--that life exists and identity,
That the powerful play goes on, and you may
contribute a verse."
-Walt Whitman

Knocking on My Door

When Anxiety comes 
knocking on my door
I promptly answer
politely ask her to wipe her feet on the welcome mat
and usher her graciously into myself.

But when Assurance comes 
ringing the door bell
Defensiveness blares my security alarms, begging her eviction
every entrance is bolted and barricaded
and she is expelled from the doorway.
