Headline Poem 11/2/14 -- Life

Life 

Deep down, 
there are parts of me 
that want 
the other road 
where I do not worry about retirement 
and doing what I'm told

   where I 
do whatever 
the hell I want (now)
like
    take the advice 
        of my favorite  quotes
and 
leave the ants 
who march blindly 
forth 

But, 
there are five of me, 
and I am confident 
I
can be responsible 
and still be free
