Addict

Condemned by calumny
..by festering filth..
“living” in the “outskirts”
and he wonders,
“Is it morning already?”
He whispers lonely echoes
to himself perpetually..
unaware of the fact
he is shivering
as he injects his warmth.
Thus pacified by the
gentle state of inebriation..
replacing integrity
with insecurity
and love with indifference;
all merely to satisfy
the taunting thoughts of his past.

Artist's Description

When we search for the “Right Answer” in the wrong places,
we too often find ourselves simply
answering the wrong question – -
thus becoming satisfied;
Rather, if one could merely continue
seeking the “Right Answer”,
he would find that he wouldn’t have to compromise
himself or the “Right Answer”
by losing sight of what mattered to him in the first place – -
knowing then that it’s more than just being satisfied.
