Why Do I Struggle

“Why Do I Struggle”
I don’t know where to turn,
I don’t know where to go.
Trust what I feel?
Follow what I know?
Random events,
Contort what we see.
It impacts,
What we will be.

Am I above or below?
Am I more or less?
Is there any way I could pass,
This test?
The edges of reality pour in.
The facts are clear.
Why do I struggle,
With you so near?

I Survived

“I Survived”

I am haunted,
Not driven.
How do you put into scope,
A simple act of living.
Nearly forty four years,
And I still wonder,
Lost in to many thoughts,
A soul should ponder.

It should not be so specific.
It should not be so contrived.
After all beyond the wreckage and smoke,
I survived.
