Desperate to Wake

From the fog on the marsh of life
Falling in and crawling out
In frenetic desperation
To make something
To be something
To create a legacy
Be remembered
Have purpose
Live a life of meaning
Rise from apathetic existence
And the rapid passing of days
In a haze of mere survival
Duty and responsibility
Lost in the search for myself
The reason for my past and present
The wasted lapse of time in nothing
Forgetting to forgive
Forgetting to love
Forgetting to respect
