The following poem is inspired by my overall mood of 2017
Another thought, another mood
Another swing, and angry again.
For nothing. People remain confused
By me. It’s complicated, it twists ’round
It misleads. I think about why I feel
This way. “Why?” I lost to strength,
In a mess, in an unknown zone of
My mind. Lost, confused and angry.
Maybe this way, maybe that way,
Whatever way, I stay the same.
The whole year irritated
With myself, angry at myself
Angry with others, their words from the past
Haunt me, stay with me and I lose.
I ask “Why” and it’s all I can ask.
No answer; must do this alone
No matter how dark and lonely it is
I must find a way out, and feel ease.
I know this: time will tell, be patient
And answers will come to aid.
I must see this through soon,
So I ask “Why? Why do I feel like this?”
The question circles in my head, I confuse myself.
Frustration wells in my soul.
