 45. Lost Inside
Who hasn't
Been a prisoner
Of their own
Misery?

We are in the
Most danger
When we
Cannot connect
To anyone
Or anything
Outside of
Ourselves.

He's of the
Privileged Caste,
Large home,
Young,
Money for schooling,
Psychically talented
And miserable.
Yet he cannot
Fathom why
It would be important
To care about
Other people.
Apathy
Is insidious.





Its been three
Days since
I wrote
The last line.

That internal
Brutal quiet
Took over
And no
Inspiration
Was able
To reach me.

I was just
As lost as
Those I accused
But isn't that
The law?
The rule
Of the universe?

I have to be
Enough,
For myself,
And perhaps
If I find
Another to
Connect to
And with,
Seeing how much
I mean to them,
I can see
Myself through
Their eyes.
Then I would
Be more than
Enough,
I'd be a blessing,
An angel
Of mercy,
An answered prayer,
One of God's
Miracles.
In helping them,
We would both
Be a little less
Lost
Inside ourselves.
