I Scream For Answers

Silently

By Scott ChristensonPublished 5 months ago 1 min read

I scream for answers

In this world of cancers

The ticking of the clock never ceases

Like my hamster dropping endless feces

It is all so confusing

I quietly keep musing

I can’t mouth words to explain how I feel

Have I been given a bad deal?

She wants to help me

My sister says to me

Attending silent meditation could be my new identity

Leading to greater personal serenity

Leading to greater personal serenity

Attending silent meditation could be my new identity

My sister says to me

She wants to help me

Have I been given a bad deal?

I can’t mouth words to explain how I feel

I quietly keep musing

It is all so confusing

Like my hamster dropping endless feces

The ticking of the clock never ceases

In this world of cancers

I scream for answers

    Like my hamster….. now that is a great line. Well done on the inverse not sure which way I prefer. I’ll have to read again.

  • It feels like a circular fate, leading back and forth with each other. Nice work Scott!
