Turning Away - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Soliciting help from beyond edges of life,
carefully holding on to the essence of my being,
not wanting to lose myself ever again.
Looking between the folds of every note and beat,
examining them all for explicit directions to begin again.
Feeling like a nothing, a person of no worth, walking in the
solitary abandonment of life, no one offering a helping heart
or hand.
Stilling my mind with uncomplacent mystery hiding within me.
Turning away from the sunshine, closely following the corners
of darkness inside of me.
Wanting to tear into it with brightened illumination, but
turning away in fear of what I may find hidden there.
