The madness afflicts and persists where hope exists but I would be remiss to write with broken wrists on my own order of cease and desist...  Showing a hand with no cards I crawl inches and yards through molasses and lard and try to discard the life once hard but feel barred from smiles, soulful glee of naïveté is not my calling card...  Out of my own way through the fray of dismay where I once used to play and frolic through mired days I can honestly say that hole kept me in a haze a phrase that doesn't pay but sets the negativity ablaze...  Learn to yearn and discern the difference of your encumbrance expanding your wisdom's circumference to burn the past's turn place it in the urn or bury it with the worms for the soil to turn...  For the biggest obstacle is simple not improbable as you stand in your own way somehow unstoppable in your plight to wrong what can be right..  Stand and fight those inner demons attempting to cascade night upon your sunrise in the horizon...

Get out of your own way
