    I like this poem. Not too long or short. poetic expressions and rhymes, and a clear message. I don't happen to agree with your message but it is clear and that is what is important to me. (Report) Reply

    I agree with the previous comments that this poem is genius but just a question about line 2 - 'I sense I must adopt a sane and spare.' Is it me or should 'sane' be 'seine' here....or is the author intentionally 'distressing' me by mixing up the homonyms sane and seine in this instance.
    If I'm totally wrong, what is the understanding of that line with use of the word 'sane' in it? ? ?

    Your Realisation is nothing less than the truth and every one should pay heed to your realisation to become happy in life knowing the trail it travels on and trail it leaves. (Report) Reply
