Elevators may stop between floors -
Shout aloud for help until the doors
Can be pulled open by the friend who hears.
A voice and friends is what we need and all we have.
Peace may come, may end certain wars.
Elevators will still stop between floors.

I really love this, it's humanity and warmth really comes through - it make me think of Shel Silverstein for some reason, only repackaged for grownups. :)

No problem at all - time is the thing, everyone only has so much of it! A good Monday afternoon to you.

:omg: what? alerady the beginning of a new book? :D

i think you had a double inspiration here, the image and some stories of when i was young.
to know that i was actually stuck in so many elevators in my life changes the perspective, no?

thanks a lot dear, always glad to receive gifts :hug:

:nod: :D

that's right, the stories as well as the image... we are all stuck in metaphorical elevators from time to time and you learned back then how to get out!

you are most welcome of course :aww:

real ones are easy to get out of, all you need is two friends :D (or usually strangers) one with a crank on the roof and another with a chair so you can climb on it.
the metaphorical ones are much more difficult i'm afraid. :nod:

right - friends more than strangers for the metaphysical ones probably - but they may have difficulty finding the crank or the chair... those things may be near at hand, but not always. hopefully the friends always hear the cry for help.

this comment is practically becoming another poem :blush:

i forgot to mention the 4 or 5 who stood near the door and told you not to worry and take a deep breath and told the man with the chair how to hold it and how to get it down, etc... :lol:
maybe in the metaphorical one the friend will take this role, too.

it's not a poem, it's metaphysics by now :lol:
