Fragments of a life not lived


waters dark and deep
raging with angst
just learning how to swim
will I reach the other side
Or find solace
In between?


I slept well yesterday
chirping birds greet me 
ask for their feed
hunger drives the world
I wonder if they think
about skies beyond

A page fell of the book
took with it a day
with some memories
For how long 
have I been alive
Or life starts today

I’ve got evidence
no one believes
opinions are subjective
whose reality is true
I don’t understand
