“Desperate for restful sleep
Beyond these walls, disconnect so deep”
Stuck in a surreal painting
Beyond these walls, clocks melting
Sluggish time, present and future lost
Humility, life lessons at steep cost.
Desperate for restful sleep
Beyond these walls, disconnect so deep
Guilty privilege, food, shelter and more
Paralyzing fear, parents at work or at the store.
Expect to discover a muse
Beyond these walls, dashed hopes and deadly news
There’s no end to this storm
Still, rush to do, to create, to perform.
Pause, embrace the authentic
Beyond these walls, not all catastrophic
Let me be, won’t be fragile for long
Will step up, will be strong.
