I avoid the roads where Resentment and Anger reside,
but Anxiety follows me like a stubborn shadow. And Fear
likes to talk over me so I just dissociate from the moment.
I lean over to Sadness, feel its comforting arms wrap around
me, keeping me secure from all the Others. It feels so warm
being there that I don't even want to leave. I see Happiness
in the distance, calling to me, trying to sell me sweetness,
but I am paralyzed. How can I leave this Friend that has
been the only one to have never betrayed my trust? Were
I to let go, what would I really be letting go of? And what
could I possibly have to gain?
