A Pantoum Poem

Will You Carry Me?

If coming face to face with confusion along my path.

I stumble unaware of the answer in this case?

Added up the numbers but was puzzled to solve my math.

Life leaves me with problems too big for me to face.

I stumble unaware of the answer in this case?

Can I reach for your hand to stand back on my feet?

When life leaves me with problems too big for me to face.

Can you carry me along when life has me beat?

*

Can I reach for your hand to stand back on my feet?

Will you guide me along and help me re-group?

Can you carry me along when life has me beat?

Save me from this long and tiering loop.

Will you guide me along and help me re-group?

Added up the numbers but was puzzled to solve my math.

Save me from this long and tiering loop.

If coming face to face with confusion along my path.

When life leaves you without a solution or a way to go about it, we reach for support to carry us through and lift us up and out of it.

This is my second try ever on a form of poetry known as a Pantoum Poem. Thank you everyone for all your support and inspiration!
