My Path Runs Ahead of Me and My Plans 

Canto Six

written by: Benjamin R Bray

@MrBray317

 

Despite the weight
The constant, crushing weight
With growing chasm
Beneath the stubs we once
Called feet

Despite the fact
That I fell
So far, so deep, so hard
I came back
Like so many of us do

It is assumed most of us
Can't
We're apparently weak, apathetic,
Just because we just
Don't know

But we fight
We claw, scrape, and scream
We cry on shoulders
We raise with our hands
Instead of investing in the ignorance

We have our enemies without
And more within
But the good among us
Won't quit
We have another chasm to cross

Writing my way through life's journey; finding inspiration in the people who make me feel like I deserve to be here. In their unconditional love that I find what little strength I feel I have to face this overwhelming world. Through my writing I find escape in expression of anything I'm feeling at the moment the pen makes contact with the paper.
