Resistance

forms
assignments
prompts
positioning
community
responsiveness
sharing
presence

but my ego
my soul
my spirit
my brain
whatever it is
that makes me
me
is screaming out
in resistance to
sharing or caring
to writing or fighting
against the world's
woes or just the
woes of my world.

there is something
like an alien fighting
to be freed from an
inane character in
a gruesome movie
inside that does
not want a witness
does not want a
share of what is
going around.

resistance, it seems,
is futile.

the borg will always
be us.

    Well penned. "...resistance, it seems, is futile..." Yet it is.

    Don't remember seeing this one but I quite like it and decidely believe we all have something like this going on. Internally we want one thing and reality quite makes us choose other things...always a quandary.
