Lunch With Susan

Lunch with Susan

“You have free will,” she said.
“I do?”  “I do,” I said, a new
phenomenon for my way of 
living my life cowed by him
who tells me how it is
how it will be forever and ever
in his threatening voice and
facial grimaces and I wonder
at me and how I have endured
this for what seems like forever
still, I cower, I am at fault
for I never should have allowed
the cowing bowing down to him
I have free will, she said so.


  1. He's you do have free will.....and you can decide things in your own,

    1. I meant YES, you do. Sometimes my iPad makes spelling errors for me. Sigh.

  2. Susan is right! When you've been controlled for so long, free will is an alien and frightening concept!
