In Retrospect. - Poem by Valerie Chase

i never figured to be here.
to sit and stare at nothing at all.
but bringing my soul here so no forceful act.
remind yourself of this everyday.
don't waste away when there's life to be lived.
never leave because you're selfish.
there is a battle to be won.
a depictment of indecision.
a glimmer of hope.
but it's all overwhelmed by uncertainty.
