something isn't right

i can't help but feel something isn't right
i feel as if this world is getting smaller
i can't help but see the light
i'm shrinking and others are getting taller

i can't help but feel something isn't right
i know who i am, i know you and i know my duty in life
i can't help but feel like i have no more fight
i know i'm not hurt yet i feel like i was stabbed with a knife

i can't help but feel something isn't right
i have all these physical and emotional pains
i wish i was a kid again in the park with my kite
yet i'm trapped in my own life with chains

i can't help but feel something isn't right
i'm sweating, spitting blood
i have no energy and no might
what i would do for a flood

i can't help but feel something isn't right
i see shadows of people, sun beating down on my face
my stomach is empty yet it feels tight
i think and i pray, i sing that one tune amazing grace

i can't help but feel something isn't right
i am still alive but i have no pulse, no heart beat
i inhale the oxygen in the thin air of the night
i can't walk any longer so i fall to my feet

i can't help but feel something isn't right
i feel like as if all this, all these occurrences happened for a reason
as if this was all my fault
my entire self being i saw in those dreams is now out of sight

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
