The Voice Distant

Kurt Philip Behm

The more you wander,

the longer the road will become


The more you struggle,

the tighter the knot has you strung


The more you worry,

the darkness turns doubt into fear


The more you resist,

the voice distant—no longer near


(Villanova Pennsylvania: January, 2018)

    Kurt, I do like this poem, had to make it a favorite!
    On a lighter note, it also reminded me quite a bit about sayings we have here in Hawaii:
    - Slow down, this ain't the mainland
    - Hang ten
    - If can, can, if no can, no can
    - Don't worry, be happy

    Strong implications of a spider, I feel. What an enticing piece.
