Analysis of Together

Edwin Tanguma 1966 (CA)



I don’t know what I’ll do
                                 Without you
I’m not sure if we will
                                  Even care
After what we’ve done to
                                  Each other
Who knows what will happen
                                  To us now
That we’ve seen the other’s
                                  Hidden side
Will we continue on
                                  As we were
Failing to think about
                                  Our children
Walking down the dark path
                                   Not caring
About what will happen
                                   If we don’t
Decide to make a change
                                   In our lives
And walk on the right path
                                   In the light
Can we start all over
                                   For their sake
Couldn’t we start working
                                   Together

About this poem

This is another one from the dark years collection…I feel as if I must continue to finish that which I’ve started…If I do not face my demons and my comedic infierno…Who will???thru and thru…I came across this tid but I found rather interesting…A male narci could possibly use it on a feeble of mind female to submit to him in a loving matter…Who knows what interpretation of loving manner could be interpreted as???Masters in a fleshy sense is pretty eye catching if you were to ask me…But I am a non believer and know nothing of Biblical matters… https://wol. jw.org/en/wol/s/r1/lp-e?q=must+slaves+serve+their+masters&p=par&r=occ&st=a I don’t know why I am having a hard time posting this link…oh well…so much for lessons about masters and slaves…
