By William Laferriere
Do we not live our lives
Hoping for a time when things get resolved?
But does that time ever arrive?
Isn’t that part of the irony?
Like Occam’s razor
That irony is that we stand on the ledge
All of the time,
And we are never truly comfortable.
What should we do?
What is right and what is wrong?
What is rational vs. irrational?
Are we always to be on the brink?
I have previously maintained
That the answer lies within,
So go to the mirror,
And acknowledge yourself.
For you, and I, are
Beautiful and seeking…
And attempting to resolve
Just what has happened.
