KNIVES, by Ken Gardner.

What's normal
at this moment
Have we lost our
collective imagination
forgetting if
We don't dream it
We won't be it
if We don't become it
We won't have
new moments for
memories to fuel
new dreams
I took a knife to
My Mid~Life Crisis
it made me stick
the Blade
into my third eye
it hurts but I can
see better with it
Bleeding
the blood waters
My imagination
with my other
eyes closed
the answers come
to Me
Choices get made
in the dark
There is a
kingdom within
Me
it's that inner voice
that knows the answer
as I am pondering
the question
the lesson from
the Dark is
Choose
Light
tonight I'll dream
of being

~KPG
