Shoulder Boulders

Two different ears and large shoulders waiting
An imp and angel came in, always overstating
The words they used were always dam conflicting
But just having one around, I found too constricting

As it turns each one of them, had their own agenda
And living large in their own, large hacienda
The weight on my back, has kept me looking down
I didn’t know half the time if what I did was sound

It’s time I evicted them, out of my life
I no longer can handle all this dam strife
With them off my back I’ll have back my vision
To walk upright and make my own decisions

Pushing or pulling
Which one would you like to do
Neither, for me too

The keyboard laying flat between my hands
Little fingers raising the lower edge
Tactile dots under my index finger tips
ESC and CTRL are within my fingers reach
