It is so easy to feel meaningless


face in the crowd lost


tumbling out of control


caught in the undertow


a speck of dust


amidst the vast universe.


Powerless and helpless, 


destined to 


give in give up


to forces beyond


comprehensive control.


“What are you doing?”


“Oh, sitting waiting


right here for 


terrible things 


to happen.”


Truly simple easy


it is to be blind deaf


to the strokes of good luck


(or is it luck?)


the straight flush


(or is it luck?)


the meteor missing


(or is it luck?)


the slamming of brakes


(or is it luck?)


close calls


(or is it luck?)


just in time


(is it?).


Simple easy


to forget the friend who 


won’t let you down


the A-plus 


on the heart of Darkness test


the conversation that changed


everything


that painting that made you proud


and the tree that looks like


a tree


dancing with papa


communion wine


the peace of


being alone in the woods


and the stars at night


on the beach


with you whispering


softly slightly


you’re I’m we’re


not alone.


There is 


Happiness love beauty 


that refuses to be squelched 


from this ignorant


a   p  a  t   h   e    t    i    c


hateful world. 


The lantern in the


pitch Black illuminates


the friend with honest eyes


gazing over the cup of tea


the warmth of a hand on yours


the sound of three words


the comfort of arms around you


telling you it’s going to be alright


it’s going to be alright


it’s going 


to be


alright.


It is you me us we


who have the power


to spread the light


or


smother it.
