I’m alone with this person. Myself is its name.
Other people know of it. I know not a thing.
In the distant horizon that calls unto me
I can see the potential to absolutely
Be relieved of my troubles. My longing can bring
Only more desolation, and I am to blame.
Into the equation, I am introducing
Resistance inadvertently. This may be why
That I feel that my world is caving in on me.
At this point I want nothing more than to be free
Of this mission. It seems that the harder I try,
The more negative karma I keep producing.
Escapism is not a career building trait
Nor is it a good technique for getting along
With others. The next logical step then must be
Reemergence – not in terms of fatality.
Everything within me tells me that would be wrong.
Thoughts collide and keep me in a negative state.
Now, a good crisis hotline person would tell me
That I’m not such a screw up, and that may be true.
I can find reassurance by going within
Where A New Place absolves my original sin
Of existence. There’s much here that I’ve left to do.
Like everyone here, I have a reason to be.
