Once I asked a man what he would need to feel satisfied
his response was he’d have to tell me when he dies
well of course I asked why
he responded with
there were too many things left to try
to determine whether or not he’d be truly satisfied
what a precarious position to take
to always chase wonderment whether
satisfied or dissatisfied just to be able to say you tried
yet he hasn’t found happiness
still he wonders why.

About the Author
Veronica Thornton a.k.a. Vee was always gifted with the art of verbal and written communication although she was never a big talker yet quite the observer and listener.
Vee currently resides in Cleveland, Ohio is a survivor of domestic violence and mother of two. In her youth she wrote notes to herself and others when she could not verbalize what she was feeling. Many thought her writings to be poetic and inspiring in nature. Her empathetic feelings caused her to keep writing later in life as a way to release all the emotions and questions that were presented to her that otherwise remained nonverbal. While most of her writings remained private it was during her educational pursuits Vee was strongly encouraged to pursue a writing career due to her versatility in topics, styles and ability to articulate her thoughts in a clear, creative yet relatable manner.
