the conundrum of freedom

in order to truly be free
(from pain, love, worry, anxiety,
depression, jealousy, laughter,
sadness, anger, so on and so forth),
you must let everything go.

no more family,
no more books,
no more television,
no more music,
no more friends,
no more kids,
no more spouse.

i think i figured those out, but
the one that gets me is lust;
that girl is fine as fuck.

i guess that’ll eventually fade
with age…and then i’ll probably
need those other things.
what a conundrum.
