Sometimes it feels like I’ve always been drifting
A piece of kelp on a huge ocean
Never able to secure my roots to a rock
Strong enough to hold me
No place has the magic to keep my attention for long
Don’t Collect Things
Ready to go at a moment’s notice
A battle that rages inside, tearing at my soul
A past that seems like a dream, no proof
A present that flickers in fast forward
A future that promises more than it could ever deliver
There has only been one love that burned so brightly
It threatened to consume me
It turned me inside out and left me
Shattered, humbled, and closed off.
Where is my safe haven?
Will I ever feel connected to a culture?
Will this uncertainty ever leave me?
Of course we’re all dying but
Do the pains of not living our dreams
Kill our spirits quicker than a car wreck
Can so easily destroy our bodies?
