The Answer Within

I walk in confusion
Truth is elusive
unable to make up my mind
Just knowing
that something
is painfully wrong

As I try to reason
with myself,
…my thoughts
slip through my fingers
like a million grains of sand.
I cannot find solid ground
I search for comprehension
and a sign
to give me a direction
When did I loose my compass?

I feel nearly paralyzed
…unable to move forward
My back hurts…
…I cannot walk
My stomach tortures me
I can barely breathe
Sleep eludes me…
…I cannot find peace

My path is unclear
I am waiting for a sign
Where is my Angel?
who watches over me…
…who will tell me true
when I do the right thing

Is my answer in the cards
lying all in order
on my kitchen table
Or in the stars
As I look up at the sky
Will I see my path there
like a game of ‘connect the dots’

…Or words spoken from a loved ones lips
Perhaps their wisdom
is greater than mine

But then,
maybe I just need
to step back
…take a deep breath,
exhale and clear my head,
then simply say…

…NO!
