very creative, a different take on \'found poetry\' I think and has the added value of providing pertinent commentary on the current global pandemic crisis,
really well executed in my humble opinion,
thanks for sharing

Oh man, Merissa, that is kind of a Pandora\'s box. Do we care about ourselves, our lives, or do we not. Waiting for something we don\'t care about to suddenly matter? Is life 90% drudgery and only 10% fun? How can we reverse these numbers? You opened up a lot more questions than there are answers. At least you made me think.

What\'s The Point?
L. B. Mek said:

thought provoking write, at its core rests that question all of humanity has been grappling with since we first found a way to protect ourselves and fear (or Amygdala) was no longer the driving force in our experience of existence, namely
\'what is the meaning \'to\' our lives\'...
so far, we only have partial answers to offer your generation,
faith: gives that prerequisite essential solace we require but is impractical as a tool to unmasking the true nature of anything, from an objective mindset..
science: (or philosophy before its name change), spent too much time answering the materialistic infrastructure of \'how\' - in all things theoretically conceivable,
while ignoring the fundamental mysticism within the \'why\' in all of existence..
so yes asking and demanding a tangible answer to why must we do anything is an essential element within that roadmap to finding out those underlying true questions,
why am I not satisfied?
how can I become satisfied?
well, sadly I can only share my limited intellect\'s interpretation to what answers I have gleaned: that is,
the search for answers itself is kinda fun.. \'if\' - you approach the question with an open mind and no timeframe or pre-set requirements to what answers you \'may\' come across...
in short, do your chores, ask questions and follow leads, find what you like, stay true to yourself and soon, you\'ll realise: this is life!
enjoy it! as best as you can, for within each blink - you give birth to that past, you can never get back...
(thank you for inspiring my rambling reply, forgive my overzealous nature and overtly lengthy response,
hubris eh? how it never fails to manifest and corrupt, lol)

Why do I read a contradiction within your words. Where you talk of fear and a time \'where\' he was happy.

I\'ts hard not to give advice when you confront with a poem like that.....However, it was an assignment, so what was the task? Would give context.
For J and you: please reconsider, as poets, the use of a grammar checker......

Good write, Merissa. Like the comma after \"write\" I leave it out and Grammarly breaks my chops until I put it in.

Good write Merissa, and unfortunately true.
One little (well medium sized) friendly place of work nearly went on strike, over being messed about. But they didn\'t - they couldn\'t really. Might have got the sack.

Our dearly departed are never really gone and I find it comforting that we can see them again even if it\'s in the realm of sleep. Wonderful piece 🌹

A lot left unsaid there - you certainly made that plain without disclosure.
I found in your words a very skilful explanation.

very pessimistic but well-expressed, Merissa. It flows naturally and both tune and tone sound at peace with the meaning...

Unwanted Feelings
L. B. Mek said:

firstly I found this an engaging read, you unfurled your problem while demonstrating an ability for grasping a more rounded perception of your point of view, that\'s a really unique gift in-of-itself, I think..
my two cents worth of response, is to simply state that in most situations we are attracted to aspects and elements within other\'s that: we ourselves covet
ergo, in situations where we look for \'older\' people\'s validation (admittedly a somewhat barren distillation of attraction), we are usually looking for the answers they seem to have cultivated (wisdom, gravitas, a sense of self-worth or independence etc)..
so maybe, if we utilise our attraction to narrow down on what aspects we want to cultivate within ourselves, we need not find it so toxic..
just a thought, (forgive me if you think I\'m being rude or patronising, I mean no disrespect)

Good words Merissa, we can get attracted to all types of people but a true friend can be any age or any sex as they will always treat you with respect.
