A Poem by Victoria Lynn Hall
Did we ever really fall down the rabbit hole or did we just go looking for logic in an illogical world? Are we trying to stay in a place we've outgrown? How small must we feel before we disappear? Do we have to keep moving to stay above water? Why would we stop? Just to smell the painted roses? Why do we keep playing games that are rigged for royalty no matter what cards are drawn? Who really has time to stay for tea with those who disguise madness with civility? Why do we entertain riddles with no answers? Why attend the dance to our own demise? How many lives did the Cheshire cat spend trying to blend in? How many lives do we get in this curious life? And why would we spend them wondering or wandering alone among unfamiliar creatures devoid of warmth or generosity? Are we the witness or the defendant when the truth is constantly on trial? How long can we remain a sane voice in a land where everyone is going crazy just to survive? Alice woke up from that story so why can't we? Is this more than a dream or no less than a nightmare? If we're lucky enough to leave Wonderland will it ever leave us?
