is there something missing…

is there something missing

have you found
your
dried tears
or
have they been
caught up
in the winds
of
time
circling
above
your tomorrows
but
falling
today
to blind you
like
an ocean fog
to
where
you are
or
could be

guilty as expected…

guilty as expected

aunt bea said
some days
i can barely
remember my name
it’s all this confusion
in the world
it’s certainly not
my age
though lately
my age
is more
like a countdown
i feel the confusion
arising from stones
of self-interest
stones
flung into the air
without regard
for whom
they might strike
and
when they fall
into a world
crowded with hate
and suspicion
those struck
are certain
that they know who
threw the stones
however
in most cases
it wasn’t who
they thought it was
but it ‘s convenient
to blame your
known enemies
it helps to
cover-up
the scars
of ignorance
and
perpetuates
the need
for revenge
