Choosing Oppression

dear one, you will be overcome

but only from time to time

in those hours fraught with

this new manacling oppression

take solace in those instances

when you are able to choose

the manner in which you are held

About John White

I've written off and on my entire life. It took years for me to finally take putting words together seriously. Now it's not, nor does it ever feel, like work. Writing daily has become habitual. No day is complete without words having appeared on the page.

  1. Yes!!!! It is the things within our control that we must learn to more appreciate. Thank you 🌟😊

  2. Beautiful 🙂

  3. Sublime. ; -) I must make this a mantra.

  4. I often wish that I could control myself better in the consuming rush of time. Like trying to keep a ship from blowing away from a dock.
