Running From A Gaping Hole


I've been asked to "recover"

"Can I?"

"Gee," I wonder

Whatever's been the matter with me

These last few days

Stems deep from within me

Striving for change

But still going thru the same ol' shit

The gaping hole in my life

Growing larger and larger

As life, unemployed, drags on

And on and on

It has become hard to go on

But somehow, I should not give a fuck

And just be happy with unemployability

Yet I don't know if I can be

The life before my eyes

Just spins around my mind

And even I don't understand why

I can't comprehend

The things that go on

Enough to solve these puzzling misconceptions

But I won't bother with fixing my feelings

I can go thru them

And get to thee other side

Where life is waiting for me

To live
