Musings of a Messed Up Mind - 31. And The Answer Is Nothing

 

 

I walk in the world, a pretender, a lonely visitor

I don't know the path and there is no map

There is no place to stop to ask for directions

I watch the world around me and despair

 

People don't see outside, their universe is inward

It easier to ignore the downtrodden, to close our eyes

Our houses are crammed with baubles

Shiny toys that blind us to what is right in front of us

 

And we scamper on whirling wheels

Like hamsters ignorant of life's meaning

I am one - and there's no reason or rhyme

Ours is to race to the end; to the finality of death

 

Desperately I search my cage for a map

Seeking the reasons for my incarceration

But i am terrified to take that step

Afraid of what i think life really means.

You swept me up in the first stanza,  felt the power of truth blazing in the second; and the third and fourth leave me with questions I can only guess at for myself.  Awesome.

I’m catching up. This is well expressed and gives me pause. Truth is I fall into the trap some days, but thankfully not so far I lose myself. 

Well done, tim. Thank you.  xo
