Scream

We act as if we own this life
silly little creatures
screaming to ourselves
and expecting answers
love starved like the desert
pain like scarlet fever
betrayal like here then never
all the while insisting
we have hardened hearts
to their overzealous ignorance
we pretend we are steering the course
when really
passengers of life
seat belted to salvation
from one day to the next
either then or now
we are just about to lose it

  1. Yet we pull and we push and we lend a hand to bend that rudder…and even if we can make life drift a little in a chosen direction then we have done each other a service. I’ll keep pulling if you’ll keep pushing. We’ll move it a couple of inches to the right and call ourselves champions. ❤
