to be passive--
I've lived my life habitually ineffectual,
Wholly apathetic to the twists and tidings
Of these turbulent waves.
They say I've got a smart brain
But the things I know
When I need them the most.
I write in broken sentences
Because I cannot keep one chain of thought
Long enough to continue to
I wish to forget vibrant forests,
The living water that flowed through those woodland streams.
I wish to forget the early sunshine
That fades to tri-colored dusk as the day wanes.
And why do I wish to forget the good?
So I could refresh my memory, on the joy of,
Simply living unafraid.
