Sitting on the Edge of Reason

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Here I sit on the edge of reason,

looking in, deciding if my core is sound.

The confusion in life often questions

my grasp on sanity.


Elusive the answers may be,

but as long as I question,

perhaps, my grasp is a connection of worth.

For whom am I to know otherwise?


The process of my thoughts,

may be individual, and my sight alone,

but at least I see with an open heart,

a mind open to possibility.


I see others indulging in human strife,

playing games for delusional gain,

and I know they are blind to their plight,

the recourse of their own construction.


I hope that at least I recognise that path,

and can better forge happier endings.

For I can only follow my heart,

understand what is placed before me.


Here I sit on the edge of reason,

wondering if reason is in any way a step forward,

sifting through the garbled confusion of life,

hoping that I can make sense of it

      Thanks d.william. In all seriousness, introspection is a reflection of the world and the world a reflection of us. In the end everything is related in some way and therefore worth the understanding. Who isn't screwed up?

      Very introspective writing. But too much self examination can lead to a screwed up mind (much like mine). LOL

      Good poem, i enjoyed the read.
