"Adrift"

"Adrift"

Lost in a sea of thought
Stuck in a tiny boat
Full of heavy thoughts
Struggling to stay afloat

Mind in disarray
Mind begins to sway
Gets heavy everyday
No clue what to do but delay

Can not escape
Can not think straight
Can't articulate
Can't communicate

Shying away
Can not speak out
Running away
Can not reach out

Heavy feeling
Slowly sinking
Soul, lost
Mind, adrift

I know the feelings you express all too well, rather, I remember them. Hang in there. I realize I have been lucky afterwards.Β

I t did, for it reminded me of the road I travelled and how far I have come and I sincerely hope you can find your own wayside inn (in my case the road lasted almost 60 years from the day I was born)
