Nowhere and Somewhere

Nowhere and somewhere

is where I must be

Search in the waiting,

but nothing I see.

Wonder perplexing

when all is unclear

giving my all and

still trapped in such fear.

WHAT is the purpose?

Oh, what have I DONE?

When did it all lose

its magic and fun?

What of the “Champion

constructed in m i s t

Only the silence

in volume persists.


Somehow, I’ll linger

and weary not yet,

Push! FIGHT and Conquer!

The unknown I’ll let…

turn into Something,

while I look away,

and trust Its still real

in the words that I pray.
