Inner Thoughts

by Wayne Gates   Jul 11, 2019


a boy in a bubble
a man in his room

one full of hope
the other full of doom

In an isolated environment
to keep them alive

one hopes to start living
the other hopes to die

one has not yet tasted
the sweet wine of life

the other can't any longer
and won't continue the fight

    This was very deep. Loved the comparison of the different views of two beings. This happens all the time. You captured the emotions so vividly with few words. Great write.
