Friday Flash 55.....

They are ALWAYS there...Those forbidden thoughts!
Should we feel guilty for seeking LOVE?
...And wanting to be loved?
Are we doomed to suffer a lifetime of lonliness,
because someone else changes?
Because they can't handle their demons?
Do we really deserve happiness?
Who sets US free?
Who draws the line between....
Selfish, and Sanity?
.
.
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55, please come tell me.
I will visit (eventually), read, enjoy, comment, then book!!
Have a great week-end everyone...
Peace...!!

This 55 makes me sad.

I think you should be happy.

That's not selfish.

Strumpet said...

Oh, Galen.

A very cool 55, indeed.

Serena Joy said...

Wow, 55 little words that speak volumes. I think we all deserve happiness and take it where we can find it. Life is short.

Kaknu said...

Wow 55 words that say so much! I've posted my second 55 - this one is a light one :)

Mona said...

AWWWWWW! I missed the yelling today by 8 points!!!!!

G Man! That is a very good question!

This a gives a totally new twist to the Shakespearean " To BE or Not To BE"

For there can be no being, only becoming....

LOVE IS ONE THAT SETS YOU FREE, IF IT DOES NOT THEN IT IS NOT LOVE, IT IS POSSESSIVENESS!!

UNDERSTAND? So sayeth This Rakshosi!

I think I have a Big Lecture for you on this one... so get ready to contend with me!

Meanwhile ladies & gentlemen My 55 is up!

Mona said...

G Man . On Behalf of my co blogger Charles, I would like to inform you that his 55 is up!

SeaRabbit said...

My own answers to all those questions, and some could be questions too ;-):
Forbidden thoughts... who says so??
Seeking and wanting to be loved is a very primal need... there is no way to fight against it...
suffering a lifetime of loneliness because of other(s)??? No... we really don't have too...
Yes... we all, every one of us deserve happiness...
Who set us free?? Ourselves...
Who draws the line... One more time, ourselves...

This text seems to come from a very catholic background... in which we should deserve something to obtain it... and where we have to be a certain way in order to obtain peace of mind... In which some knots can't be undone... for some unclear reasons... Yes, it is a sad text... and I wish it is not reflecting your reality... otherwise, I will hve to come and shake you a bit... ;-))
I wish you a wonderful week end!!!

Polt said...

Donnetta Lee said...

Hmm. Much to ponder here. I can't answer. Have to think about it. Maybe we should be a bit selfish. Bring on happiness that can be shared with others unselfishly.

My 55 is up and ready!

smarmoofus said...

Mike, I know I read your 55 last week, and I commented. You should check that you haven't accidentally changed a setting that all comments are moderated now. The last two posts (the only two since October!) have 0 comments showing, and that can't be right.

(g-man, sorry for posting this here, but I didn't know how else to get in touch with Mike... I am too lazy to email.)

Mona said...

GALEN!!!! PLEASE CHECK MY NEW PICTURE POST!
