I Can'T See - Poem by Emer Lyons

The fog, the mist;
it carries me down.

I wouldn't call it
darkness, I wouldn't call
it night. Just as
bewildering though.

If I don't find a signpost
soon, I don't know what
I will do. I need
a lantern,

a candle, a flicker of
light. Just enough to help
me to make
some distance.

I don't need to see
the end. I've never
been fond of
conclusions.

    Been down that road as a trucker, many time and more, but I love the poem, would have liked to have written it which makes it something no one can take away from you. (Report) Reply

    when life gives you uncertainty without an instruction manual, make love to your confusion. (Report) Reply
