RoseAnn V. Shawiak (October 6,1950 / New Jersey)
Distance Of Classical Music
Cantering to classical music, enjoying it's divine company
in my present state of sadness.
Folding all thoughts, gathering them to me, wishing to
hold them always.
Never rushing into spacious rooms full of risks, instead
staying here inside where it is much safer.
Not talking or relating on any level, contemplating life
in my own particular style.
Relieving self of guilt and shame which are no one else's
Tossing aside all comments made that I do not wish to
discuss and think of.
Left to my own devices, life will improve in the degrees
I choose for it.
Other people may keep their distance - this will make me
Nothing anyone can do or say will change a thing because
I choose to ignore them.
This is my day, like no other, and I will enjoy it through
the cantering of classical music without interruption.
