What Can I Do? - Visitor's Poem

by Brian M
(Attleboro, MA, USA)

Every day I wake up wondering what I'm going to do, and everyday I get the same result which is that "I don't have a clue."

I need to figure things out, I need to think my life through. I'm tired of waking up every morning not knowing what to do, knowing that I have every potential needed to get through.

What can I do?

I am lost, I'm stuck sitting here thinking but all that I can think about is the past; Time truly does go by way too fast.

The only reason that I know that is because of the fact that every day, every hour, every minute, and every second that goes by; Every moment just flies right by, almost seems as if time passes just before my eyes.

It is kind of scary in a way, not ever knowing whether I am living or dying, dying or living, coming or going, staying or leaving, what I'm doing, where I've been, where I'm headed, or where I'm going.

The one thing that I do know is that it's time to make a change; I am done sitting around doing nothing but the same.

Now, here I am sitting here in this chair expressing myself and these feelings so rare. I just had to let them out, I had to set them free, everything that I said came straight from my heart; I said whatever came into my mind and I let it out with each and every side of my soul.

Now that I have relieved my mind and I've set my thoughts free, I am ready to go, I'm ready to roll. Come on now, it's time to bring on the big bad world.
