Do you exist?

Are there days in your calendar

That are empty?

Are there thoughts so loud in your head

That refuse to let you sleep?

Are there lists with little check-boxes

That taunt you?

Are there hours and days and years

That were swallowed anonymously?

Are there others with lives and dreams and achievements

That make yours seem small?

Are there any traces of the child and the teenager

That you once were?

Are there ways to change the heart

That won’t wound you and bleed you to death?

Are there words within you, deep within you

That have forgotten how to be born through your hand?

 

Are you there anymore?

Do you exist?

Everything in between

I swim not the surface
But the dirty depths
Of a violent Ocean

I am no small fish
Neither am I the
Biggest whale

I am much smaller
At the very base
Of the proverbial food chain

Yet, I am the beginning
And the end
And, everything in between
