call and response poem 6:27:16

Lost

I know where you are

Yet unreachable

I have a rope

And I’m ready to throw

I dropped everything

But my hope

But all I see is hopeless

Underwater

I’m coming up for breath

Yet pulled back by the current

The current is myself– not allowing me

To live

For what ?

I always ask

For who ?

In search of someone

I’ll miss

Because things don’t last in this life of temporariness

So i just let everything go

Why should I hold it

It’s grabbing me, is it grabbing me, reaching

What is it

What does it seem like– I ask

Always open to live, is the lie I tell myself
