#358 So I Feel - Poem by Jimmie Arrington

Like a falling feather from a fowl in flight,
Like a whispering breeze through the autumn night,
Like drops of rain at the old homestead,
So I feel in my befuddled head.

Like one black cloud in the deep blue sky,
Like awaking to the sound of a gentle lullaby,
Like immobile stars that have somehow aligned,
So I feel in my perplexed mind.

Like a labeled liar who speaks only the truth,
Like a dejected child in the innocence of youth,
Like an actor who knows all but his own part,
So I feel in my confounded heart.

Like taking the scenic route only to rush by,
Like sobbing aloud without a tear in the eye,
Like a ruthless hare traveling at a tortoise's pace,
So I feel in this uncertain place.
