I am exactly where I am supposed to be
So I hear the words echoing around me
But how can this be when I feel so lost
Alone in a world full of people
With a beautiful, loving family?
In a haze of doing and more doing
Engulfed by the feeling of nothing
Time the keeper of the score
I the loser of this game.
Thought barrels into me, bowls me over
Perhaps I need to feel so that I can write
When the mind is numb and unclouded
Ideas and words can enter
A path unplanned brings adventure
Prospective outcomes conceivably better
Though lost and alone, still looking
For the silver lining
That I may play in this game.
