To be or not to be

Posted on Oct 31, 2016 in Poetry

Hamlet (Kenneth Branagh)In trying so hard not to be
That which I wish to avoid,
All I have known and felt as
Hurtful
Painful
Isolating
Challenging
Unloving
Unpopular
I can deflect.
I can forget to be
I can neglect to be
All that I am.
Was this Hamlet’s perplexity?
Do I live a life of not being,
Rather than of being?
That IS a question.
For one is spent on denial,
Repression and suppression,
Perpetual fight or flight.
It is a reactive No,
A living death.
The other roots in acceptance,
Open-ness and feeling,
Continual ebb and flow.
It is a passionate Yes
To life and rebirth.
