“The mountains are so dominant
that some days the people refuse
to look at them as children
turn away from the fathers who beat them”
~ Jim Harrison from Songs of Unreason
The feeling I feel when faced the idea of facing anything anymore.
To climb is exhausting.
To sit is exhausting.
To self examine is exhausting.
To shield myself from the truths I know exist just under the surface.
I bury my head in the sand.
Like an ostrich hiding from a foe,
Like a child hiding from discipline.
Deferring battles I must fight.
Hiding from a war I won’t wage.
Closed eyes, closed heart.
