(Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania)

Absurdly Simple

Constant thoughts bring mournful tears,
the discouragement in the path that seems endless,
withdrawn to the world of pity and futility,
displeasure announces the presence of loneliness.

Fearfully facing the turbulence that life brings,
shouldering the unwanted anxiety of pain,
lost in the fierceness of endless bewilderment,
not knowing what reality brings.
