“Defenseless under the night
Our world in stupor lies;
Yet, dotted everywhere,
Ironic points of light
Flash out wherever the Just
Exchange their messages:
May I, composed like them
Of Eros and of dust,
Beleaguered by the same
Negation and despair,
Show an affirming flame.”

Thompson wrote: We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and—in spite of True Romance magazines—we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely—at least, not all the time—but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don't see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.

as a fish, I looked around, and wondered,
what's above?

a frog I'll be, and hop about
and breathe the air so clear,
and then I wonder,
what's it like,
to run into the hills?

a rabbit now,
so fast and fleet,
a home, and fur, and skills.

but,

what's it like,
to have no fear?
a wolf I shall become.
and run and chase,
and hunt and eat,
a mate for all my years,

but,

what's it like, to feel the air
above me, and below?

A raven now,
so black and sleek,
an intellect, and freedom true,
to come and go with ease,

and what about an eagle,

yes,

the king of all I see,,,,
I fly, I hunt,
I eat, I sleep,
and as I'm looking down........

I wonder:
What's it like,
to swim,
and breathe
beneath the waves...........
