Is this Life?

Updated on October 8, 2013


Confusion and pain are my constant friend

annoyance with the inability

to function a day without pain racking my brain

throwing me into a whirlwind that spins me out of control

leaving nothing but perplexity at the state

that I have been frightened into

The immensity of the pain

takes my mind and throws me into

a living hell

from which I see no end.

Knives as sharp as swords

poke and slice me into a writhing

mass of wounded flesh

that tries to reassemble itself into

a semblance of a human being.

My stomach trying to turn itself inside out

as I strive to maintains a cheerful demeanor

and an outward show of moderation.

Anguish refuses to give way to acceptance

and I am drowning in the torture that is my life.

Knowing that there is more for me in life

than the situation in which I find myself.

Yet seeing the life that is thrust upon my mother

I know that even now I am greatly blessed.

      "Knowing that there is more for me in life than the situation in which I find myself." So happy that you included these lines. Believe them.
