Seeking Sanity Poem by Susan Lacovara

Seeking Sanity

Rating: 4.8


Sanity...
Where's the life you promised me
All your "I love yous"
left on my window sill
Washed away with the rain
I watch the sunrise
As I always do
But it's just another day
another day away from you

Sanity...
Lost in the songs you sang to me
Stuck in my own imagination
loneliness and frustration
Wasting time rereading old love letters I saved
Sad but true what's left
But to turn the calendar page

Out there, somewhere out there
Somewhere out there on your own
I'm here fighting back tears
Realizing I'm alone
Hard to remember sweetly the days of you and me
This is just my New Normal of seeking sanity

Sanity...
Oh what's to become of me
Picking up the pieces
Myself to realign
Can't help but wonder was it a spell I was under
How long 'til I get you off my mind
And find my sanity

Sanity...
Once again feeling I can breathe free
To steer towards a new direction
Again recognize my own reflection
And get up off my knees
Find me some sanity
God grant me sanity
I just need clarity
And some sanity

" God grant me sanity" is the focus of my interest. In this day and time, He is the only supply of sanity.
