Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

Country Nights with Dog and Elephant by ManicD Daily at
Sometimes we must let go and trust
Give someone else the lead
We'd rather not admit we must
Although we do concede

We can not always go alone
The roadway often bends
To see around the corners well
We must place trust in friends

For someone used to being in charge
The hardest part of all
Is letting someone else feel large
Without you feeling small

At times it seems the toughest deed
Is to admit we have a need.

So true. Though, sometimes I am so grateful if somebody takes over for five minutes that I am embarrassingly thankful.

Too true. Too true. It amazes me how you can come up with poem after poem. It's all I can do to write in barely comprehensible english sometimes.

Yes, the toughest thing for many people to accept. We all think we don't 'need' anyone as support especially those of us who believe to be so cognizant that we are 'born alone and die alone'. The Irony of it all is that we, beings, intrinsicly need that bond. We desire not to be alone.

Love your words.

A really wonderful piece. Love the message you have sketched within the lines. Beautiful!

I also respond to your question on the form I used for 'She Juggles Stars' over at my piece, could not find a link to an email. It kind of created itself, but I too really like the feel of it so will probably use it again in the future.

It's sometimes the most difficult thing to do ... admit that you need guidance , especially for the mister-know-it-all personality ! Nice one !
